Meeresblick, Estate of the Day
Today's home is another of Rhode Island's famous summer cottages. The J.B. Lippincott House in Jamestown, Rhode Island was originally known as Meeresblick and was built in1892-93 for J.B. Lippincott, son of the founder and later president of the J.B. Lippincott Co. publishing firm. After Lippincott's death in 1940 the house went to his daughter and her descendants still own the home. The shingled home sits on a waterfront parcel on Mackerel Cove and has charming fieldstone details. Inside the allure comes from the original woodwork, and beautiful glass windows and brick fireplaces. Unfortunately we don't get any of the all-important kitchen and bathroom shots with this listing so some updates may be necessary. it is listed at $4.9 million.
