Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty Sells Historic Home in Tiverton

Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to announce the sale of 72 Fogland Road for $3,270,000. Fogbottom Farm is situated on nearly five acres of farm coast grounds and includes a c. 1808 Federal style five-bedroom home, a two-bedroom guest house, and barn. The seller was represented by Cherry Arnold, Sales Associate and Allison Oster Dessel, Sales Associate: both of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty. Rebecca Rubin of Residential Properties, Ltd. represented the buyer.

According to data available from Rhode Island Statewide Multiple Listing Service, this is the most expensive home sale in Tiverton since 2013 and one of only four homes ever sold for more than $3M in the municipality. Agents of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty have represented six clients in the top twelve Tiverton single family sales year to date.

With breathtaking panoramic views of Sakonnet Passage and the Atlantic Ocean, the estate is considered to be one of the crown jewels of South Tiverton and has had just five owners in 200 years.

Led by two of the firm’s top agents, the owners of this significant property chose Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty to represent the marketing and sale of their one-of-a-kind coastal compound.

“Having known the owners since I was a teenager, I have long admired this very special property,” said Cherry Arnold. “It has been an honor and a highlight of my career to work with them in transferring Fogbottom Farm on to the very fortunate next stewards.” 

The sale of Fogbottom Farm is the third significant historical Tiverton property Cherry Arnold has sold in the last three years. 285 Stone Church Road, the William Witridge Estate c. 1770, was sold in November 2020 and 3617 Main Road, the Captain Ely Hammond House c. 1880 was sold in July 2019.

Allison Oster Dessel adds, “It’s a true privilege to have represented the very fine sellers of this magical, singular property. Their love and care for the property is evident in every space, inside and out. I am beyond proud to have been a part of this sale, and I know wonderful memories will be made by the new owners of Fogbottom Farm.

Allison Oster Dessel has represented both sellers and buyers in several top sales statewide, including the highest single-family sale in Providence in 2020; the fourth highest single-family sales in both Barrington and Bristol in 2021. Allison has also represented clients in the highest land sales in Little Compton and Narragansett this year.
