Property Description

Own your own piece of Block Island history. Just off the highest point of Corn Neck Road is the entrance to this one-of-a-kind 8.7 acre property that commands the most spectacular views on Block Island including 180-degree vistas of the Atlantic Ocean, Montauk Light, the North Lighthouse and the Newport Bridge. Relish in the expansive acreage of this property, walk along your private, stonewall-lined trails to the exclusive West Side beach, enjoy the countless acres of conservancy land that surrounds this property or fish in your own private pond. The authentic island design and character of this three-bedroom home fits seamlessly into the surrounding landscape, and the elevated deck allows for great entertaining or a private spot to relax and enjoy the Atlantic Ocean views and remarkable sunsets.

Roy Rowan, a well-known journalist, editor, and author, purchased this property over thirty years ago. He wrote several books, including Surfcaster’s Quest, about fishing on Block Island, while summering at the property. "When I first saw the property I thought the view was the most beautiful I had ever seen anywhere in the world”, says Rowan. "Since then both my wife and I have enjoyed the stunning views and backdrop from the house to inspire our creativity and imagination. Block Island is a home for artists and has many galleries to show their work, as well as fine sand beaches to snooze away the afternoon on, and blackberry patches to pick the makings of a pie. When you board the ferry on one of the hydrofoils to head out for Block you feel that you are embarking for an unspoiled foreign land, a restful place for a wonderful vacation.” 

With the significant acreage of this estate there are endless possibilities. Keep it all to yourself and retain the historic charm of the original residence, build your dream retreat, or separate the lot and allow for more than one home. This is an exceptional opportunity on Block Island. Make this picturesque property, where time stands still, the perfect place to escape life’s daily distractions.
