A short distance down the private South Arnolda Road leads toward an exquisite stone and shingle home set within a hillside, overlooking Ninigret Pond. A recent renovation has made current this circa 1920 home, with modern finishes accenting the early 20th century charm. An open kitchen and living space is at once simple and sumptuous, with coffered beadboard ceilings, honed marble surfaces, an expansive island, built-in cabinetry, and natural stone fireplace. Stainless steel appliances include a Thermador double oven, a 6 burner stove with grill, a GE refrigerator and full freezer, and Miele dishwasher. French doors lead to a covered porch, where salt pond views can be enjoyed while dining, reading, or simply enjoying time spent in the open air. Across the foyer a den and recreation room are punctuated by a double-sided fireplace, accommodating both family and style. A bedroom, and one and a half bathrooms complete the main level. Upstairs, a generous master suite features built-in nightstands and bookcase that harbor a king-sized bed, while the master bathroom offers a gorgeous marble and tile tub and shower with glass doors. An L-shaped bedroom makes for a wonderful kids room complete with play area, and a full bath off of the hall services this room. The lower level offers a fourth bedroom and full bathroom, a media room, foyer with wall-to-wall bookshelving, and interior access to the two car garage. With Ninigret Pond access steps outside the front door, paddle boarding, kayaking, clamming, fishing, tubing and more can be enjoyed from sunrise to sunset. A short paddle down the pond leads to Arnolda’s private, white-sand barrier beach. Arnolda is a private, seaside community and has long been one of Charlestown’s most coveted neighborhoods, offering its residents ample opportunity for saltwater recreation and respite from Rhode Island’s summer crowds. Amenities include salt pond access via four community docks, tennis courts, and access to a private, Atlantic oceanfront barrier beach.
