Community Spotlight: Charlestown, Rhode Island

Charlestown is one of Rhode Island’s most rural beach towns. The serene surroundings and picturesque idylls offer tranquility and easy access to natural resources. Here at Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty, we are dedicated to preserving the extraordinary lifestyle Charlestown affords its residents. We have an unmatched presence in the community and are proud of the work our agents do every day.

This quiet seaside community is almost an anomaly in today’s bustling world of coastal tourism. Charlestown is composed of distinct coastal neighborhoods, each with its own charm and privileges, such as private beach access. The southern shore is a continuous string of white sand barrier beaches, behind which are a series of salt ponds.

Ray Mott, Broker/Co-Owner of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty is a local resident of Quonochontaug. His signature Charlestown familiarity has influenced our noteworthysuccess. By creating a strong presence, we have become one of the most consistently recognized high-end firms in the Rhode Island Southern Coastal market. “Charlestown is a wonderful community for all walks of life,” says Ray. “We have been frontrunners in this luxury real estate market year after year and will keep this momentum through 2019 and beyond.”

Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty has been instrumental in the Charlestown market this year. According to data available from Rhode Island Statewide MLS, associates with the firm have represented clients in nine of the 13 over one million sales in the town in the last twelve months. We currently have several active listings and rentals in the area.

According to Judy Chace, Broker/Co-Owner of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty, “We continue to establish ourselves in the Charlestown market by proving our extensive knowledge of not only the community, but what buyers are looking for.  We know buyers and we continue to deliver for our clients time after time.”

Charlestown’s sheltered salt ponds, coves, and tributaries provide wonderful settings with a variety of conditions for canoeists and kayakers. Extensive trails and conservation areas provide entertainment for hikers, campers, and birding enthusiasts alike. Once an important location for the Narragansett and Niantic tribes, Charlestown is home to many historic and prehistoric landmarks. With the arrival of European settlers, farming, industry, and ultimately tourism came to the region. Charlestown thrives on this sense of history and place. Thanks to the efforts of organizations such as the Charlestown Land Trust, development has been limited. Open spaces have been preserved and the seasonal farmers market is a mainstay of the Charlestown community. Today, visitors can enjoy Ninigret Park, The Umbrella Factory, and several recreational conservation areas.
