A historical-architecture lover's dream: Bring your imagination to a historically significant home on Block Island, once a boarding house, complete with both original and restored details throughout. From outside, this classic home impresses with fish scale shingles, a welcoming front porch, and beautiful glass windows thought to be original. A sturdy staircase and corridor greet you with rich, deep tones of natural wood. Outside, two secluded outdoor showers bring out the best of island life, and a meandering path of native plants leads to a separate two-story structure which can be used as an office or artist studio. Opposite the yard, find a shed for storage, and near the driveway, an original chicken-coop with a hinged window. The location, walking distance to the pristine, white-sand beaches of Block Island, as well as the Great Salt Pond, can't be beat, with a driveway opposite to historic Mitchell Farm, which features sprawling fields and stone walls. This home, brimming with history, charm, and patina, is not to be missed for those with an eye for design and authenticity. In the family for two generations, Bayside now awaits you.
