Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty Lists Historic Estate in Little Compton

Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased to announce the listing of the estate of John C. Whitehead, former Chairman of Goldman Sachs and ninth United States Deputy Secretary of State, for $8,500,000.  The property, located at 1 & 5 Ohio Road, is a nine-acre oceanfront compound located on the south-western tip of Sakonnet Point. The seller is represented by Cherry Arnold, Sales Associate, and Judy Chace, Co-Owner/Broker: both of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty.

The property is made up of two oceanfront parcels that encompass the northern half of Lloyds Beach, and is surrounded by twenty acres of conservation land and Watch House Pond. Each property features a single-family home, sited to take in the extraordinary 180-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean out to Cuttyhunk and the Elizabeth Islands, Sakonnet Lighthouse, Sakonnet Passage and Aquidneck Island.

John C. Whitehead’s son, Gregory Whitehead, said his father loved the simplicity, the peace, and the privacy of the property. “The sense that as soon as one drives through the gate, there is the distinct feeling of being in another world – the confluence of the ocean and the river with the sounds of the sea, the passing of different types of boats, and the abundance of wildlife.”

The contemporary glassed home at 1 Ohio Road sits on four- and one-half acres. With over 2,220 square feet of living space, boasting one ensuite bedroom and one-half bathroom, this 2002 built dwelling features a steel super structure, crittel glass and steel windows and doors, radiant heat, and a woodburning fireplace.

The converted barn home at 5 Ohio Road sits on just over four- and one-half acres featuring three bedrooms and three full bathrooms. With over 2,700 square feet of living space, this dwelling originally built in 1939 features a one-car garage, a lower level walk-out, and an in-ground gunite pool surrounded by a slate terrace.

“This very special estate is one of the most beautiful and private oceanfront compounds in Southern New England.” says Cherry Arnold.

Judy Chace states, “We are proud and honored to be representing this one of a kind property.”
