Mackerel Cove Haven

Coastal Elegance Combining Seaside and Pastoral Views
By Davitt Design Build

Overlooking picturesque Mackerel Cove in Jamestown, RI, this newly built luxury home boasts over 6500 square feet of living space and is surrounded by 100 acres of beautiful coastal farmland. The original home on the 1.84 acre lot was known as “The Seagull Farmhouse” and was built in 1670 by the son of Governor Benedict Arnold. The property has long been appreciated for its location, but the clients envisioned a home with modern amenities and spaces built to maximize indoor and outdoor enjoyment. The Davitt team meticulously dismantled the original home, salvaging many of the mortice and tenon hickory beams to incorporate elements of history and charm from the original home into the new construction. Inside, the home surprises and delights with its detailed finishes seamlessly transitioning to spaces that accommodate outdoor dining and entertaining.

Upon arrival, one is greeted with the spectacular custom stair tower, large 3-car garage with separate mudroom entrance, stunning patio area, and a relaxing screened-in porch. The first level of the home features a cozy den and functional office space, a large dining room, spacious living room, fully equipped kitchen, and a guest suite complete with a kitchenette and sitting area with double doors that provide direct access to the outdoor living area.

The gourmet luxury kitchen is equipped with custom Rome Point Woodworking cabinetry, sleek quartzite countertops, Zellige tile backsplash, a custom butcher block countertop on the island, and the salvaged wooden beams from the original home. The striking nautical blue-themed butler's pantry makes a bold statement with honey bronze hardware and quartzite countertops while also providing ample room for extra storage. The kitchen opens up to the main living room that leads out to the beautiful 15x30 rectangular pool and expansive patio that showcases the stunning views of Mackerel Cove and the surrounding farmland that blankets the property.

The clients are thrilled with the results of their newly designed home in their dream location. The original antiquated home has been transformed into a bright, spacious, and breathtaking haven for friends, family, and a growing number of grandchildren to gather.
