18 Plimpton Road, Watch Hill

Intercrest, meaning “between the waves,” stands literally steps from Ocean House with the bay on one side, the ocean on the other. This entirely reconstructed home has commanded its extraordinary vistas since it was first created in 1898. The home was built originally for J.F. Champlin, the original proprietor of the Ocean House Hotel. The home features over 5,000 square feet of elegant living space and 1,500 square feet of exterior decks and porches offering breathtaking views of the harbor and beyond. Comfortably accommodating up to 14 guests, the property features 7 bedrooms with both king- and queen-sized bedding with 7 full and 2 half baths.
Of the 3 queen bedded rooms, 2 offer a shared private balcony with calming bay views. There are 4 king bedded rooms with the top floor king providing access to a private wrap-around deck. The main floor provides a flow of inviting living space for relaxing and entertaining, including a gourmet kitchen with a 10-foot island and over 400 square feet of gathering space.  A separate top floor entertaining space features a wet bar with kegerator and access to a 300 square foot outdoor deck with direct views to the Ocean House, the Atlantic and Little Narragansett Bay. There are two entertainment areas with large screen TVs to enjoy sports or the best of Hollywood. There is parking for 3 upfront and 4 in the back.
This classic residence combines the very best of old and new. Soft tones of grays and whites envelop the home in comfort and style. Perhaps the best feature of all is the effortless access to Ocean House, directly across the road, where guests may enjoy all the privileges and services of the internationally acclaimed resort and its beaches.
