"Horgan Cottage" an award-winning, stately and historic home built in 1900 featured in Architectural Digest. Newly restored by renown architect James Estes, with commanding views of the harbor and Narragansett Bay.

Exceptional design can be found in every aspect of this gracious home with its custom cabinetry , fine-joinery and architectural detailing in the Shaker style. Originally a "sleeping beauty" this historic home was known as "Ghost House" and in need of an inspired vison which it found in its current owners.

As you enter the main areas of the home you are greeted by its openness and harborside views. The spareness of the interior belies its sophisticated simplicity. The lower floor (or "premier etage") has a charming entry hall which beckons one onto to the porch for taking in the views or for stepping out to all town amenities and village life. Two guest bedrooms and full bath allow for privacy when friends or family are visiting.

The upper floor is taken over by a private master bedroom suite with a lovely sitting area and plenty of bookshelves and encircling views looking out to the bay. A study or office space and a laundry room are also easily accessed on this level.

Upon reaching the third floor via the elegant maple staircase, astounding harborside and marina views surround the open, airy Great room. Relax by the woodburning stove and enjoy the warmth of a fire on a cozy winter's eve or entertain in the adjoining dining area and gourmet's kitchen with large pantry....a "foodie's delight!"  (An installed "dumb waiter" makes bringing staples up from the lower level an effortless task.)

A "boardwalk" on the exterior side of the house leads through a charming and private perennial garden out to the garage, thus completing the plan.

The architectural "language" of this unique and creative home uses the vocabulary of space, light, transparency, natural woods, blue sky and water, the whiteness of sails along the marina and perfection in all of its interior details.

This property also conveys with a deeded share in the waterfront parcel across the way, thus ensuring the continued protection of the magnificent views.

Within easy reach of Providence, Boston, NYC, Wickford Train Station, Cape Cod and the Islands.
