Jamestown RI - Conanicut Island- At its Best

Jamestown RI 02835- Conanicut Island- Jamestown RI Real Estate- Not an Island Adrift.  Southern RI has many spectacular waterfront communities such as North Kingstown, South Kingstown, Narragansett and Charlestown and one of my favorites for great RI real estate and its spectacular location is Jamestown RI.  Jamestown RI is 30 minutes from Providence RI and is on Conanicut Island in Narragansett Bay (west of Newport RI and east of North Kingstown RI).  There are approximately 5400 residents (2010 census stats) and a much broader summer community base of visitors.  Jamestown RI is the town and it does maintain its quaint seaside village flair.  Being on an island 9 miles long and 1 mile wide connected by two bridges, living here feels like a country unto itself.

Based upon the latest Jamestown RI town survey of residents it is the location, village feel and natural environment with Jamestown RI Waterfront CondosNarragansett Bay that makes Jamestown RI a highly desirable area to live in.  Home prices range from $300,000 to $9.5 million in Jamestown so there is a wide spectrum to choose from and you will not see subdivisions on  Conanicut Island.  As well as you will find no two homes alike whether custom built or renovated cottages the choice of design and views are endless.  Of course, the most desirable of homes have waterfront or a great water view of Narragansett Bay.  My out of state buyers love the tranquility and openness of Jamestown RI and it certainly one of the gems of Rhode Island's coast.  Another thing you will not find (at least not as of yet) is many short sales or foreclosures in Jamestown.

Jamestown RI tries to remain true to its agricultural base and while the majority of homeowners work off the island, there are self sustaining agricultural farms on the island such as Watson Farm with over 250 acres of farmland.  This farm will be preserved in its entirety from generation of generation contributing to the life blood of Jamestown RI community. 

Jamestown RI homeOf course if you are new here as a visitor you will want to explore the Jamestown 'town' area which is on the west side of Conanicut Island and on the corners of Conanicus and Narragansett Avenues...if you blink too fast it may be gone...it is a short stroll up and down the streets of well plated restaurants (Sympatico Trattoria is one of my favorites), sweet ornamental shops and local bars where one can have a micro brew on tap on a warm day.  Don't forget to stop by Beavertail State Park on the southern end of the island and bring an early evening picnic dinner to watch a magnificent sunset here or enjoy the hiking trails within.  In addition, there are two historic forts to explore with Fort Wetherill and Fort Getty with camping at Fort Getty- both have premier Jamestown waterfront views.

Yes, when we say location, location, location in the real estate world it is no doubt that Jamestown RI fits that saying.

Hi Ginny,

No Short sales and no forclosures as of yet. WOW. Not even one. I think in part is the area. There is no way the homeowners want to loose their home to a short sale or forclosure. They just love it too much there in that area.

Great news. I hope it stays that way.

ps, i was going to comment on the "RANT" but with so many comments I didn't want mine to get lost.

Ginny, Love the fact that there is so much variety in your home styles.  Here, too many cookie cutter developments, the sameness as you change towns but see the same model homes in a different subdivision....bleh.....

Clint, by no way would your comment get lost...i read & file each one...and i had great comments on the RANT...Jamestown RI real estate is just wonderful...

Michael, it is a great visit...head north next year!

Barbara, it is that summer/vacation house that keeps percolating doesn't it..

BLiz, very different community here and that's because land is so expensive to buy...i've been looking for 2 + acres with waterfront & dock potential for a client & it's a challenge with enough frontage

Ellen, cool isn't it...some are over priced but they do sell over time...thanks

If you are a winter person,  Jamestown has the Penquin Plunge on New Years Day that attracts thousands of hearty swimmers!

From the Jamestown Press:

"The 35th anniversary of the Jamestown Penguin Plunge will take place on Jan. 1 at Mackerel Cove. Hundreds at participants plan to hit the waters at noon to take part in one of the original New Year’s Day plunges in Rhode Island.

Proceeds from the event will benefit over 2,700 athletes that compete year-round in over 1,400 training opportunities and athletic competitions.

Michael McGovern, retired executive director of Special Olympics Rhode Island, came up with the idea for the plunge back in 1976. Over the past 35 years the event has transformed into one of the largest and most successful fundraising events for Special Olympics Rhode Island. It has raised over $2 million. The fundraising goal for 2011 is $60,000."

It'd be great to get there and do some gunkholing Ginny.  Newport may be in the summer picture, we'll have to add a jaunt to Jamestown if it comes to fruition.

just seeing the photos here will show how beautiful Jamestown RI as a home and fact that there is no foreclosures and short sales in the area gives a home buyer more reason to buy a property from the area.
