“WETHERLEDGE”

359 Highland Drive, Jamestown RI

 

An Elegant Summer Estate Built in 1889! This breathtaking estate sits high on a ledge with commanding easterly and southerly views of Newport and Narragansett Bay. Designated as the "Officer's Club" for locally stationed service personnel during WWII, this very private home sits upon almost 3 acres of wooded and landscaped grounds. From the summer porch one can watch the fabulous parade of yachts sail past and enjoy the shimmering ocean views and breezes. With the busy and exciting resort town of Newport just a few minutes drive, Wetherledge awaits your return with its serene privacy. The home sits high on a plateau looking  across to the Castle Hill, once owned by the famous naturalist Louis Agassiz and Hammersmith Farm, the former summer Whitehouse for John and Jackie Kennedy.

The estate is comprised of the main house with an apartment wing and a charming stone gatehouse. The main house is approached via a long hedged drive which terminates in an elegant cobblestone circle in the appropriate form of a compass rose.  On the ground floor you will find an elegant paneled dining room with fireplace at the center of the house. Arrayed around the dining room you find a card room, living room, sunroom and a large screened porch. In the adjoining wing lies the large and sunny kitchen, a butler’s pantry, laundry room and a full bath. The second floor houses five bedrooms with two full baths. Three of the bedrooms on this level enjoy waterviews. The third floor is currently outfitted as an in-law apartment with two bedrooms and a living room, all with extraordinary water views. A small kitchenette and full bath round out this level.

 The gatehouse is a charming stone turreted cottage set in amongst gardens. The first floor enjoys a spacious open floor plan with living room, dining room and kitchen. Off the living room you find a full bath and bonus space suitable for a large office or possibly a guest bedroom. The second floor has three bedrooms and a full bath. With a convenient private drive and parking the Gatehouse lends itself to a number of flexible arrangements such as guest quarters, in-law home, staff quarters or rental.

This lovely historic home is just a few moments from the peaceful but vibrant small-island scene in the historic village of Jamestown with its marina, shops, restaurants and beaches.
