Broker Terry Boyle at LandVest in Boston also participated in the transaction. At the time of the sale, the property was not actively on the market and had been off and on for a number of years.

Claudia Philbrick, Sales Associate added, “The buyers began looking for their Rhode Island oceanfront dream home in 2007 and knew the minute they walked out onto the deck overlooking the ocean and saw the spectacular view that this was the one they had been hoping to find!”. “This record breaking sale reaffirms that the choice waterfront properties along the desirable south coast of Rhode Island are very much in demand.” said Philbrick.
