After you have exhausted what there is in business, politics, conviviality, and so on -- have found that none of these finally satisfy, or permanently wear -- what remains? Nature remains.
Walt Whitman, poet (31 May 1819-1892)
A very special property offered as it stands. This is an estate sale of an unbelievably private 97 acres of open fields and woods, with a four-bedroom home and serene views in every direction. A rural sanctuary just twelve minutes from the ocean, there is beauty here in all seasons, and at all times of day. Snow blankets the winter fields, melting into green in the spring; the deep silence of the night gives way to birdsong at dawn. Turn your dream into reality, and make this your farm, hideaway, nature preserve, or spiritual retreat.
With its uncommonly large amount of conservation and recreation land, Charlestown is a remarkable collection of pristine natural resources. Burlingame State Park, Ninigret Wildlife Refuge, Ninigret Park and East Beach comprise approximately 20 percent of the total land area of the town and its protected wetlands, fresh and salt water ponds, and a barrier beach system.
