Offered for the first time in almost 100 years, Wind Hill is a rare treasure
Lila Delman Real Estate International has just listed “Wind Hill,” an exceptional 17-acre waterfront estate with a 10-bedroom historic 1890 manor house, a spacious carriage house, a gatehouse, stables, tennis court, and numerous garage spaces for one’s car collection.
“With its panoramic west-facing water views of Narragansett Bay, stunning sunsets over the water, and deep water dock, “Wind Hill” is a paradise for yacht owners,” commented Lila Delman Real Estate International Sales Associate Alyce Wright. “During the 12-meter era of America’s Cup racing, there were many parties at Wind Hill attended by numerous America’s Cup luminaries.”
The grounds were expertly re-designed by the Olmsted Brothers, who were renowned landscape architects. The manor house offers expansive and unobstructed water views and consists of 7,328 square feet of living space over 3 floors with 10 bedrooms, 6 full and 3 half-bathrooms, and 6 fireplaces.
In addition to the manor house, there is a post-and-beam carriage house with 3,652 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 2 full and 1 half-bathrooms built in the 1990s which is ideal for visiting friends and family. The historic gatehouse from the 1920s consists of 1,855 square feet, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and was originally built as accommodation for the chauffeur. The pool is set within a charming walled garden area and also offers views of the Bay. There are 13 garage spaces, stables and a tennis court.
An avid yachtsman, the late owner was a Commodore of the Cruising Club of America. He and family members sailed in a dozen offshore yacht races including 7 Newport to Bermuda races and a transatlantic race to Cork, Ireland. For many years, he was also on the committee to select inductees into The America's Cup Hall of Fame, located at the Herreshoff Marine Museum in Bristol, Rhode Island.
‘Wind Hill’ is listed at $6,995,000. For further information, or to request a showing, contact Alyce Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 401-662-7993.
