177 Beavertail Rd Sited on four and a half serene waterfront acres, “Meeresblick” stands majestically near the shores of Mackeral Cove in Beavertail in Jamestown RI. This classic shingle and stone masonry summer cottage was built around 1893 by Joshua and Joanna Lippincott who summered in Beavertail while away from their native Pennsylvania home. Joshua was an heir to the Lippincott Publishing fortune and Joanna, was the daughter of Joseph Wharton of Bethlehem Steel and founder of Wharton School of Business. Mr. Wharton lived across Mackeral Cove in his prominent and stately home known as Hor...sehead. He wanted to be sure he could keep an eye on his daughter’s property.The home stands as a perfect period piece with its incredible oak paneling, wrap around porches and expansive veranda. Upon entry into the stunning and dramatic home, one’s eyes are immediately drawn to the leaded stained glass windows that draw in lots of natural light and the outdoor vistas that highlight the turreted staircase that are surrounded by ornate oak panels. The foyer also features an enormous brick gas-fired fireplace that adds to the warmth and inviting feel of the home.The main living areas of the home feature exquisite 12’ ceilings that are beautifully adorned by elegant crown moldings and continue the use of oak paneling that is featured throughout the home. The home has approximately 6,000 square feet of living space and is comprised of generously sized rooms throughout and features water views from most rooms, hardwood floors, leaded glass windows, paneled pocket windows, and delightful window seats.The first floor consists of the turreted foyer, parlor with a fireplace enveloped by two leaded gothic styled windows and columns. There is also a large dining room with its own brick fireplace and that has beautiful oak paneling throughout and is surrounded by tranquil windows enjoying the view of the Cove. The library is off the dining room and has access to the wrap around porch.The kitchen is generous in size and has its own massive fireplace that adjoins the dining room and an exercise room. There are modern stainless appliances and soapstone countertops. An added bonus is the butler’s pantry and the built in cabinetry and hutch.The second level of the home features 6 bedrooms, most with beautiful water views and leaded glass windows, including the master ensuite. One impressive treasure of the master bedroom is a patch of unpainted wall that features penciled sketches dating back to the early 1900s. The third level is also spacious and generous, and likely served as quarters for the staff.
