353 High St, Block Island, RI
A short walk from the bustling town center stands a one-of-a-kind Block Island home built by Captain Henry (Kit) Kitterman Littlefield who was a well-known, trap fisherman and sword fisherman as well as a state representative.
Each of the four bedrooms holds generations of stories to be told, or to be kept still.
The same could be said of the tranquil porch swing facing the street, the noise from the town seems somehow blown away as you sit and watch the day unfold.
A traditional foyer greets visitors to the Greek revival style front gable with its ornate shingling and trim, craftsmanship the like of which no longer exists in the modern-day era.
A grand and sturdy newel post anchors the staircase, there is one bathroom on both the 1st and 2nd floor. A spacious attic area also is accessible via a quirky stair from the 2nd floor.
The old house offers a unique personality to choose stillness and quiet or step down to the movement and thrill of the town center minutes from your doorstep.
Zoned as residential/commercial/mix (RCM) the house includes a newly built separate 2-bedroom cottage zoned a 513 in order to provide year-round housing. The cottage has one full bath and one-half bath with modern and sympathetic architecture and warm natural wood finishes are prevalent throughout.
This home is looking for a new custodian to refurbish and renovate this historic building. In return it offers its owner an opportunity that is unlikely to come again.
