Narragansett Multi Million Dollar House Built on the Wrong Land to be Moved
This has been a 5 year battle to have this Narragansett Multi Million Dollar House Built on the Wrong Parcel of Land to be moved from its location to its right location. The Superior Court just decided that the deadline is December 31st for this $1.8 million oceanfront Narragansett RI real estate home that was mistakenly built on the Rose Nulman Park land in 2010. Not only must this three story home at 1444 Ocean Road be relocated to the right property next door but the septic system and driveway of this house must be removed and restored for the Park.
Sounds like a crazy story, right? What builder in his right mind would build on the wrong parcel of Narragansett oceanfront land? Well according to court documents the builder, Lamoureux, built the home relying on a survey and engineering done by the company he hired. Have not heard what other litigation is going on but local Rhode Islanders suspect there is so much more to this story than we are being told!
Save the Bay tried to stop the house move via the Superior Court since it was felt that it would be close to wetlands. The court upheld Coastal Resource regulators decision to move the house.
Why do you have a good real estate agent when you are buying a house such as this? You want to ensure your setbacks and boundaries of your home are where they should be. That is how this whole mess was discovered by a home buyer who wanted to buy this home and had the property re-surveyed!
Well this developer has until December 31, 2014 to move the house and plans are already underway to move it shortly. The Rose Nulman Park will be satisfied that they will have their land back and the developer of the Narragansett house being moved...well I assume life has not been very pleasant for him these last few years!
