Historic Bancroft on the Bluffs offers 300 degree Ocean Views that extend from Second Beach to Sachuset Point, Sakonnet Light, Elephant Rock and the Atlantic Ocean. William Ralph Emerson, the father of shingle style architecture, designed the home in 1896 for John Chandler Bancroft. The sunken Chinese Garden is attributed to Frederick Law Olmsted and sits between dramatic rocky outcroppings of native puddingstone. These beautiful rock formations create a natural pathway down to the water. In 2006 the property was renovated into 10 luxury condominiums. Unit 6 is the largest residence offering over 3,000 square feet of living space on the choice southeast corner of the house. The light interior is in like-new condition with an open designer kitchen, zinc island, new high-end appliances, hardwoods, four fireplaces, a dramatic turret room surrounded by windows framing breathtaking views in every direction. Located on the second floor, the residence is accessible by stair or elevator. Just 5 minutes to Newport and a quick walk to Second Beach - it's a perfect place to relax and appreciate one of RI's most scenic spots.
Middletown is aptly named for its location between Portsmouth and Newport. It’s located on Aquidneck Island, and is bounded by three bodies of water, Narragansett Bay on the west, the Sakonnet River on the east, and Rhode Island Sound to the south.
