On the Market: An Oceanfront Oasis in Little Compton, Rhode Island
Stay happy as a clam at this vacation of a home.
41 Beach Drive, Little Compton, RI
Size: 3,900 square feet
Want to walk through your entire house without ever losing sight of the ocean? No problem. This sprawling Rhode Island residence is replete with French doors and paned windows, nearly all of which frame unobstructed views of the Elizabeth Islands and Martha’s Vineyard surrounded by blue Atlantic waters. Brushing against the shoreline, the 1.3-acre property is as serene as its ocean vistas, landscaped with stone walls and walkways, an outdoor shower, courtyard, and a sunken firepit where you can stay toasty late into the evening.
Alongside the main home, a guest house provides a large rec room complete with a wet bar, a full bath and living room, and a built-in bed hollowed into a shiplap wall like a window seat—ideal for having some separation during COVID times.
The single-family itself, meanwhile, is even lighter and airier thanks to pale pine floors, whitewashed rooms, and vaulted ceilings supported by hand-hewn beams. A trio of staggered pendant lights made of coiled fiberglass and resin hang above the dining room table like contemporary clouds, bringing a soft glow into the already sunny living space. The kitchen’s shiplap accents bring in some casual coziness, but the gloss quartz counters, stainless appliances, and gold hardware maintain an unmistakably high-end appeal. Between its two buildings and lush, oceanfront yard, it’s the kind of space that makes you feel like you’re on vacation—even when you’re working from home.
