Property Description

“Wind Hill” is a 17 acre waterfront estate with an 1890 manor house set high on a hill to offer panoramic west facing water views of Narragansett Bay and stunning sunsets over the water. With its deep water dock, Wind Hill is an ideal estate for yacht owners. During the 12 meter era of America’s Cup racing, there were many parties at Wind Hill attended by many America’s Cup luminaries such as Baron Marcel Bich, Alan Bond (whose yacht Australia II won in 1983 and thereby broke the longest winning streak in sporting history), and Ted Hood. The Tudor style manor house, designed in 1890 by the New York architectural firm Trowbridge & Livingston, offers expansive & unobstructed water views and consists of 7328 sq. ft. of living space over 3 floors with 10 bedrooms, 6.3 bathrooms, and 8 fireplaces. The pool is set within a charming walled garden area and also offers views of the Bay. The grounds were expertly re-designed by the renowned Olmsted Brothers. There is also a post & beam Carriage House (3652 sq. ft., 4 bedrooms, 2.1 bathrooms built in 1990’s) which has a large deck with water views and is ideal for visiting friends and family. The historic gate house (1855 sq. ft., 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms) built in the 1920’s was originally built for the chauffeur. There are numerous garage spaces (11) to house one’s car collection. In addition to the deep water dock, there are also stables and a tennis court making this estate a paradise for those enjoying the sporting lifestyle!
