Welcome to “The Twigs,” a landmark contemporary home at the beginning of Newport’s famous Ocean Drive, designed to take full advantage of sweeping ocean views of Narragansett Bay’s entrance, the East Passage, Jamestown, Block Island and beyond. Originally designed by architect Bill Burgin, the home underwent complete interior and exterior renovations in 2011-12. From new systems to a new top floor deck, “The Twigs” is entirely updated to the utmost in quality and fine design and is available turnkey/fully furnished.
The first floor allows for ocean views from every room and outdoor space. Two native stone fireplaces frame the unobstructed view, anchor the living and dining areas and are offset in texture and tone by the polished floor and bright frames of the Hoboken windows. In addition to the open living space, the first floor has a cozy den, a foyer/sitting room, open galley kitchen and breakfast area. Professional grade stainless appliances include Sub-Zero refrigerator, Wolf range, Fisher&Paykel dishwasher. Sleek Italian custom cabinetry by Snaidero USA, Caesarstone countertops and open stainless and glass shelving offer a glamorous and efficient gourmet cooking experience. Decks on all sides of the main level lead to the newly landscaped, fully fenced gardens, a plunge pool, outdoor cooking and entertaining spaces.
A graceful spiral staircase leading to the second level is a focal point to the interior and exterior design of the home. The stunning west-facing master suite incorporates a fireplaced sitting area, deck, dressing room, and a luxurious glass-tiled bathroom suite. Three additional ensuite bedrooms with west and south facing decks complete the second level.
On arriving at the top level, one is rewarded with pinnacle views from the “Crow’s Nest” lounge and large sun deck with glass railings. Designed for relaxation and entertaining this getaway area of the home has a media suite and a 360-degree view for sun rises, sunsets and stargazing.
Gated entrances on both Ocean Avenue and Chartier Circle allow for guest and service driveways. The two-car heated garage leads into the lower level with a fully-equipped caterers’ kitchen, media room, full bath, laundry, storage and utility room. The home includes central air conditioning, efficient gas heat, remote gas fireplaces, SONOS home audio, Apple TV in all bedrooms, whole house generator and security system with cameras and remote home management monitoring.
