Cottage 18

Goat Island, Rhode Island

Goat Island is an exclusive gated community off the coast of Newport, Rhode Island's historic waterfront. Each of these waterfront cottages is named after a winning vessel of the famed America's Cup sailing competition. This house, know as Constellation, sits near the point of Goat Island.

As it is often the case with buildings this close to tidal waters, expansion and demolition is highly regulated. This complete reconstruction transformed this 1980's weekend get-a-way into a stately waterfront house. The plan was organized to afford every room stunning views of Newport's historic waterfront and Newport Harbor. The master suite is isolated from the guest rooms and entertaining spaces to afford the owners their own private relaxation space.
