The following is from a press release.
The new Newport Beach Club opened over the Fourth of July weekend, offering new waterfront property in town.
The Newport Beach Club is a classic New England seaside village currently being constructed on 150-acres of waterfront facing the Narragansett Bay on Aquidneck Island. The entrance is located off Bristol Ferry Road.
The club offers its members a newly constructed Olympic-style equestrian riding facility, a championship tennis facility with four Har Tru tennis courts and two heated paddle tennis courts.
Fishing enthusiasts will find sport-fishing slips that can accommodate yachts up to 120 feet. Owners wishing to kick back after a day of sporting can relax at their exclusive beach club with resort-style pools and cabanas.
The Newport Beach Club joins The Carnegie Abbey Club as the first comprehensive sporting estate communities of their kind, designed and constructed on the east coast.
The architectural inspiration is a classic 19th century New England beach village with beach paths, intimate streets and shingle-style architecture. Authentic design is tightly managed by a team of “town architects” who review each home plan prior to construction. The club is an environment designed to encourage walking, golf carts, bicycles and horseback riding. There are indoor and outdoor equestrian riding facilities, as well as stables for up to 80 horses.
Heading up the architect team is Fred Bissinger.
Bissinger has spent 40 years designing architecturally authentic period-style luxury homes ranging in size from 2,000 to over 30,000 square feet. Teaming up with architect Michael Flores, who specializes in luxury Victorian beach-style homes, homeowners can build their own custom home that blends beautifully into the natural landscape of the New England coast.
The grand opening and introduction of The Newport Beach Club brings a whole new level of luxury living to the area. Future members will have access to room service, championship golf, five-star dining, an Elemis spa, tennis, equestrian, polo and a beach club contingent upon which membership they choose.
Jillian Pritchard Cooke of Des-Syn home decorated the recently completed Tennis Cottage model. The Tennis Cottage homes epitomize authentic New England architecture while offering open plan living spaces designed for and popular with today’s active family. They incorporate “Wellness within our Walls,” which ensures that materials utilized in the construction and interior design promote a healthy environment. Every feature of the Tennis Cottage is controlled via an iPad.
The first classic American beachfront house is 3.5 stories with extensive wraparound porches, two-story family rooms and a private beach directly on the bay.
