From the Zillow listing:


Along a gorgeous stretch of sandy beach, within walking distance to the historic village of Watch Hill, is an inimitably singular opportunity, perhaps of a lifetime, to own Sandcastle. Beautifully sited on nearly one acre adjoining protected conservancy land, Sandcastle affords breathtaking 180 degree ocean views that stretch from the Weekapaug coastline to the iconic Watch Hill Lighthouse, with a pristine white sand beach in between. Casual refinement and comfort greet you upon entering the foyer with its beautifully handcrafted woodwork that continues into the double story grand salon soaring to a mezzanine that captures full ocean views. Handpainted, decorative artistry covers the dining room walls and offers those who dine delightful views from every angle. A large and comfortable kitchen provides the ultimate spot for informal gatherings. A spacious family room, a cozy den, a first floor bedroom and bath as well as a wet bar complete the first floor. Upstairs off the mezzanine are 3 more bedrooms including the master suite with a well appointed bathroom and balcony to watch the evening sunsets. Also on the upper floor is an office and the perfect alcove to work, read or gaze at the white caps beyond. A slate covered gazebo and seaside garden create a magical setting for alfresco entertaining. There is a 3 car garage that features on the upper level 2BR, 1BA guest quarters with a sitting area and full kitchen. Sandcastle is the ideal getaway for the discerning buyer.
