Easton's Beach Real Estate & The Land Trust Cottages
RI beach homes - I mean the kind RIGHT on the beach where you can hear the surf - are a surprisingly rare commodity for a state with 400 miles of coastline.
But way down at the end of long, sandy Easton's beach (a.k.a. 1st Beach) is a secret enclave of shingle style homes called the Land Trust Cottages. These six Classic homes enjoy a fantastic Middletown location with Easton’s Point to the East, Cliff Walk to the West and nothing but sand, surf and Atlantic Ocean to the South. Homes in this special area enjoy protected views thanks to storied landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted's who completed the site plan for Boston developers in 1887.

Land Trust Homes and Amenities
After completion in 1889, the Land Trust Cottages were summer-only homes for families vacationing by the sea. Meals were taken together in one of the cottages and the families dispersed back to their own places afterwards.
If you're looking for luxurious oceanfront living in Middletown, you can't beat the Land Trust Cottages. Tall privet hedges surround the compound where you can retreat from the rest of the world. Though close to restaurants and beach activities, it's quiet and private here but just minutes away from the amazing restaurants and unique shops in Newport. For a great place to eat that's really close to home, walk over to Flo's Clam Shack with a Gilligan style shipwreck in front and sunny decks with crazy ocean views on the sides perfect for enjoying fresh clams, lobster, scallops, clam cakes and, of course, New England clam chowdah.
