MIDDLETOWN, RI – Hogan Associates is pleased to announce the October 26, 2018 sale of “Beach Cottage” at 115 Purgatory Rd., Middletown, Rhode Island for $2.6 million. Laurie Hewitt Burke of Hogan Associates represented the Seller, Michael Gretz, and The Connor Dowd Team of Keller Williams represented the Buyers, 115 Purgatory, LLC.
“Beach Cottage” is one of six Land Trust Cottages located in a private enclave on the east end of First Beach. Completed in 1889, the shingle-style Land Trust Cottages were summer-only homes for vacationing New England families. Meals were taken together in one cottage and families dispersed back to their own places for the evening. The cottages enjoy protected views thanks to storied landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted, who completed the site plan for Boston developers in 1887.
Today, these venerable summer cottages are stand-alone homes with all the modern amenities. “Beach Cottage” is equipped with an elevator, central air conditioning, updated kitchen, six baths, six bedrooms including a guest suite and a newly renovated bathhouse.
“Only a handful of homes on Aquidneck Island have a sandy, ocean beach in their front yard,” commented listing agent, Laurie Burke. “And ‘Beach Cottage’ is one of the best.”
“These days you would never be allowed to build on this amazing spot,” said Broker-owner, Matt Hadfield. “It’s easy to understand why turn-of-the-century beach goers wanted to be here.”
