"When I first saw the property I thought the view was the most beautiful I had ever seen anywhere in the world”, Roy Rowan – Author/Journalist
Roy Rowan, well-known journalist, editor, and author, purchased this property over 30 years ago. He wrote several books, including Surfcaster’s Quest, about fishing on Block Island, while summering at the property. “We were simply visiting friends on the Island when we were first taken over to see it---and it was love at first sight.” – Roy Rowan.

The character of this three-bedroom home fits beautifully into the surrounding landscape.

“Both my wife and I have enjoyed the stunning views and backdrop from the house to inspire our creativity and imagination” – Roy Rowan.

Make this picturesque property, where time stands still, the perfect place to escape life’s daily distractions.
“Block Island is a home for artists and has many galleries to show their work, as well as fine sand beaches to snooze away the afternoon on, and blackberry patches to pick the makings of a pie. When you board the ferry on one of the hydrofoils to head out for Block you feel that you are embarking for an unspoiled foreign land, a restful place for a wonderful vacation.” – Roy Rowan.
