When a Picture is worth more than a thousand words.  Yes, on a private road this waterfront Narragansett home for sale sits serenely unoccupied for the last 8 years!  It seems that another Ponzi like schemer on a smaller scale than Bernie Madoff was having the time of his life here too.  While he built 2 waterfront Narragansett RI homes, he bamboozled his financial victims out of about $1.4 billion. This scoundrel with a residence in Florida (his residence there was 9200 square feet in Fort Lauderdale) had this Narragansett property seized, along with others, by the U.S. government and put up for sale.  There is far more to this story that may later be revealed.  Would not want to speculate further until I am sure the house is ruled out as a possibility by my clients. However, the Ponzi...

Narragansett RI real estate - Edgewater neighborhood.  Narragansett RI is the home of the renowned Narragansett Beach…it is a location Rhode Islanders are all proud of.  So the Edgewater neighborhood is unique in its own right and will not to be upstaged by a local beach by any means.  This fine neighborhood is on the northerly point of Narragansett and is located on the other waterfront border of Narragansett that being Narrow River.  True to form Edgewater is a mix of ranch homes, cottages, colonials and upscale homes to enjoy.  The choice of Narragansett homes for sale is varied but all have one thing in common here – all are within walking distance to the Narragansett waterfront.  What is great about this Narragansett neighborhood?  Well there is so much to share but first and forem...

Penguin Plunge – New Years Day - Narragansett RI Real Estate is Amazing.  Balmy oceanfront Narragansett RI was the scene for a fantastic fundraiser for Special Olympics at Roger Wheeler State Beach in the village of Galilee this New Year’s Day 2012.  Time of the big penguin splash for participants was Noon time.  Now I have supported and been an annual voyeur at these events year after year.  BUT yesterday I have never seen the number of people like there were on the beach or lined up trying to get into the parking lot from over a mile and a half down the road! It was an awesome experience …the state parking lot was full of cars, buses and limousines, no less!  I guess if you are going to freeze your kiesta off, you should go home in style!  Well my pictures show a bit of the craziness ...

Bonnet Shores neighborhood - Narragansett RI - All the Way to Bonnet Point.Bonnet Shores has two neighborhoods within one so to speak.  The Bonnet Shores Road neighborhood I have written about before and it is a distinct waterfront Narragansett neighborhood too.  But we are heading right at the fork on Bonnet Shores Road to Bonnet Point Road which takes one past the high grasses and Westquage Pond.  Affectionately known as 'Bonnet' to the locals...come follow me down there.   There is a great diversity of waterfront Narragansett neighborhoods to choose from, experience and mosey around in when RI house hunting.  Also, it is all about the beach in Narragansett and all neighborhoods are close to a number of the many beaches on Narragansett Bay or the ocean.  Yet, Narragansett Beach contin...

Bonnet Shores neighborhood - Narragansett RI 02882.  One thing I have shared with clients is that Narragansett has a great diversity of Bonnet Shores neighborhood - Narragansett RI waterfront neighborhoods to explore and check out when RI house hunting.  All neighborhoods are fairly close to the beaches on Narragansett Bay or the ocean – the choice is yours. Having lived in Bonnet Shores, I know the neighborhood well and it has certainly evolved Bonnet Shores home - Narragansett RI over time into a great community of vacation and year round living.  Their are two paths to follow to get into Bonnet Shores and for this post I will explore the Bonnet Shores neighborhood off Bonnet Shores Road which is considered the northerly neighborhood.  There is also Bonnet Point Road neighborhood whic...

Can't Buy It - It’s Narragansett Pier – This is Narragansett RI Real Estate. The destination for travelers, home buyers and visitors coming to South County RI always includes Narragansett Pier and sea wall.  It is spectacular in its ocean views at the mouth of Narragansett Bay out to the Atlantic Ocean.  This is one of ‘the Beaches’ in RI recognized time and time again as true Narragansett real estate.  Can’t buy it, can’t have it but you can enjoy it this time of year for free if you like to feel the beach at your soles. Narragansett Pier is so named because in the late 1800′s Narragansett RI was home to the Narragansett Casino where the wealthy frolicked from Newport way.  The pier was the docking point for the yachts that came to the casino.  Sadly in the 1880′s the Narragansett Pier...

Narragansett RI beach - Stinky Beach- Best in Waves!  Let's go to stinky beach today and body surf with the best waves around.  That was the call of the wild when we were in college and wanted a private Narragansett RI beach without prying eyes where we could roam with our boyfriends.  Unfortunately, the name 'stinky beach' was a local term because of the way the coastline formed a boomerang shape and the ocean seaweed seemed to end up here...yes, on many a day a smattering of red, yellow, orange and green seaweed would be awash on this pristine white sand beach.  Nonetheless it was the privacy and seemingly breathtaking piece of beach to be on that made it so special. Just north of Narragansett's Scarborough state beach, we could park on the side streets for hours and just have peace ...

Are You Looking to Buy a Home in Narragansett RI?   OMG...It is the Orange stickers again in Narragansett RI and why would this be of concern to a buyer looking for a Narragansett primary residence or an investment home?  Well these 'orange stickers' placed on homes by the police are the Scarlet Letter 'A' (orange letter 'A') which denotes the home is an active party home.  It means the home occupants have violated town ordinances and the owner has been probably levied a fine. With many URI students renting off campus in Narragansett, it is a two edged sword here- on one hand the number of home rentals keeps the town's taxes low (less education expense) and on the other hand the students do like to party and may disrupt quiet neighborhoods. Dealing with Narragansett home rentals takes c...
