Step Inside These Once-in-a-Lifetime Homes
A historic dairy barn converted into a quintessential New England estate and a contemporary masterpiece are both for sale in Little Compton’s Sakonnet Point. The pair of homes are being sold separately, but both by Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty. The homes are set on 4.7 acres of oceanfront property with access to Lloyds Beach. The properties are surrounded by 20 acres of conservation land owned by Cynthia Whitehead, wife of John C. Whitehead, former Chairman of Goldman Sachs and United States Deputy Secretary of State.
“It’s been an honor to work on such a special Little Compton property,” said Cherry Arnold. “Ohio Road represents so much of what Little Compton is known for – stunning ocean vistas, a beautiful beach, protected land, and a home with a rich history.”
Giving residents a relaxing beach getaway, but just 70 minutes from Boston and 45 minutes from Providence, these homes offer the best of both worlds.
Tour The Properties
Both 1 and 5 Ohio Road are made up of two oceanfront parcels, each with a single-family home, surrounded by 20 acres of conservation land. The two homes could not be more opposite, as one conjures up old New England, and the other screams contemporary chic. The combo gives interested buyers plenty of options.

The estate was positioned to offer sites to take in the amazing panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean out to Cuttyhunk and the Elizabeth Islands, Sakonnet Lighthouse, and Aquidneck Island. The 1939 former dairy barn was converted to a comfortable vacation retreat, complete with a gorgeous gunite pool for those warmer days with no oceanfront breeze.
Inside the home, it features an open floor plan on the second level with a large living room area that opens up to the balcony with breathtaking coastal views. The second floor is home to a large kitchen, breakfast nook, dining area, and two bedrooms, both with ensuite baths. The ground level features a family room with sliding glass doors that walk out to the gardens and pool, as well as the third bedroom, full bath, and laundry. The pool area, with a blue slate deck, also features a sauna and outdoor shower and is surrounded by colorful coastal gardens.
Walking paths lead you through the natural fields to the western side of the property, which includes 65 feet of beachfront along beautiful Lloyds Beach. Access to a beach is a rare offering and this property represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind oceanfront property located in one of the most beautiful locations in coastal New England.
