From the Zillow listing:


Welcome to “The Old Hummocks” in Portsmouth, RI. Rich in history, this area is a community of homes perched on a ridge on the northeastern shore of Portsmouth between the new Sakonnet River Bridge and the old Escape Bridge. This area began as a summer community and get-away spot for families from Fall River and Taunton. It has grown over the decades and still has that special feel of the past. It is now a collection of summer and year round homes with special access to a beach great for all water activities. The home is just that. A summer beach Cottage. A rare opportunity to transform this home into something a little more modern or enjoy the rustic feel it currently possesses. The home does not have a heat source, but has 3 bedrooms and 1 bath. Perfect views of the Sakonnet River with close access for kayaking, canoeing or windsurfing make this a truly unique offering. A new septic system is needed along with updating the interior. This type of property does not come for sale often. A true diamond of a home rich in history. Come see for yourself.
