About 171 Cottontail Drive

A reproduction of two c1776 famous homes—the Hunter House in Newport and the Longfellow Home in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Design and architectural features done by the owner blended the best of the Colonial period with modern comforts. Important attributes, such as intricate dental molding, unique to each of the historic homes have been combined to produce exceptional curbside and interior appeal. The pineapple-hospitality Hunter House-themed front entry door was replicated to exact dimensions.

In 1992, the owners had 2,000 feet of native pine and red oak cut, sawn to rough dimension, and kiln-dried to produce distinctive random-width hardwood floors and extra wide interior moldings. The first floor boasts custom hardwood 7/8th-inch random-width boards with mahogany inlay. All exterior trims and moldings are made from redwood or cedar to stand up to the elements. The home is heated by a five-zone forced hot water system fueled by oil. Back-up heating is provided by wood, with an average of five cords is used each year resulting in a heating budget of $1,250. Widows walk is fully functional and hosts breathtaking panoramic views of the Sakonnet River. Deeded beach access provides unlimited access to the beach for swimming, fishing, paddleboarding, and boating for you and your guests.
