Designed to take advantage of its superb location, this magnificent English Manor house, known as Grey Ledge, sits on nearly seven and a half acres of waterfront property on Conanicut Island’s northwestern shore. Overlooking Sand Point, the home enjoys breathtaking westerly views of West Passage and Narragansett Bay from every room.
The beautifully landscaped property has perennial gardens filled with native species and a lush lawn that leads down to a private beach.
As you cross the threshold through large double front doors, you are welcomed into a gracious foyer that showcases dramatic high ceilings and a pair of curved staircases.
The foyer flows into a spacious great room with an elegant living area on one side featuring custom built-ins and a marble fireplace; and a formal dining area on the other. Double doors lead out to a raised granite veranda equipped with retractable screens, creating the perfect spot to enjoy the sunset.
A butler’s pantry leads into the gourmet kitchen, complimented by cherry cabinets, granite counters, a stunning, custom tile backsplash, and top of the line appliances. Overlooking the water is a casual dining area with a fireplace. The adjacent octagonal sunroom, with it’s vaulted cherry ceiling, compliments the kitchen area. There is access to both the veranda and a side porch equipped with a grill station.
The lower level contains an expansive family room with a built in entertainment center, a fully equipped bar, and a 3000 bottle wine cellar. Separate sitting areas are accented by vaulted ceilings finished with luminous Venetian plaster. Double doors open to a large granite terrace flanked by stairs leading up to the veranda.
The north wing of the lower level houses the indoor lap pool, sauna, full bath and fitness room, while the south wing contains a spacious, fully applianced, catering kitchen.
In addition to a first floor master suite, there is a second master suite on the upper level with a marble bath, walk in closet and fireplace. Double doors lead out to a deck overlooking the gardens and the bay.
Completing the second floor are a pair of additional bedroom suites, each with a fireplace and west facing water views. The south suite is arranged as a study with wood paneling and a wet bar.
The home also provides a pair of attached two car garages and an elevator.
Close to the water there is a lovely cabana with a full bath, fireplace, and covered granite terrace.
Located in beautiful Jamestown, Grey Ledge is a perfect retreat – private yet close to all that Newport and Rhode Island have to offer. The property is easily accessible from Providence, as well as both the New York and Boston areas.
