What makes the perfect RI Beach House?

Everyone has their own criteria for RI beach house perfection. For me it's the sound of the surf at night, walking out the door onto the beach, a fried clam shack nearby (serving the "real" kind with bellies and tartar sauce), ice cream cones scooped by industrious kids seeking "tips for college," and, oh yes, I want to do these things with all the people I love, all at once, in one house big enough for togetherness and solitude.

Enter 115 Purgatory Rd, Middletown: Beach House for Sale

You might think this heavenly situation - a beach house for sale with all the right elements - is easy to find on Aquidneck Island. In fact, only a handful of homes have direct access to ocean beaches. 115 Purgatory Rd. is one of them located in a secret little enclave called The Land Trust Cottages. Six shingle style cottages stand proudly at the east end of Easton's (1st) Beach just across the Newport line.

The Land Trust Cottages

The Land Trust Cottages were conceived by a group of Boston developers in 1887 and completed under the direction of EB Hall and Frederick Law Olmsted in 1889. Olmsted's site design resulted in optimal sunlight, space and amazing water views toward Cliff Walk and Easton's Point from each of the five original homes.

Established as an elite summer compound - think ladies with parasols and mustachioed men in striped swimming suits - the Land Trust Cottages are now as good as it gets when it comes to luxury beach homes.
