Country and coastal living all in one at this wonderful 4 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath Colonial in the coveted Green Hill section of South Kingstown. Built in 1985 by the current owners, it's been meticulously maintained and enjoyed ever since. This 5+ acre property just off Matunuck School House Road is bounded by the Trustom Pond Wildlife Preserve, as well as by 26 acres of common land so the owners made every effort to fit their new home to its rural surroundings. The home was designed by House Planners, Inc. Washington County Builders were the general contractor. You can see the wildlife that share this property with the owners from every window in this 2,582 sq./ft. residence. The master bathroom is new. The home was designed so each room can be closed off separately from the rest of the house. The aroma of salt air and the sounds of the ocean can be enjoyed from the recently replaced sundeck. There is an integral garage for 2 cars, and a passive solar sun room off the handsome family room. This property is part of the Land and Sea Beach Association. There is a deeded parking space for two cars at the. Association club house 1.7 miles away on Green Hill Ocean Road which looks out over stunning views of the ocean and Block Island.
Land ‘n Sea is unique. It is approved by the town as a ‘residential compound’ and consists of 50 acres. The balance of the land not individually owned is owned jointly by all the homeowners. The minimum lot size is two acres. Ownership in Land ‘n Sea comes not only with this common land acreage but also membership in the Land ‘n Sea Beach Club, and its ownership of four acres of pristine ocean front land and clubhouse. Land ‘n Sea is in an area that abounds in things to do related to the ocean from boating and beaching and sightseeing to the robust night life in Narragansett, Watch Hill and Newport.
The Land ‘n Sea phases are clusters of beautiful private homes in the Green Hill section of South Kingstown. According to the state’s Historical Preservation & Heritage Commission report, Green Hill was once a small mill village but it remained largely uninhabited until it began to be developed as a resort community in the early 1900s. Growth started to accelerate after a life saving station opened in Green Hill in 1912. The station was manned until 1933. “The Green Hill community grew considerably, with houses set on relatively large lots on plotted streets in a suburban like sitting,” the report said.
