Sale of indian avenue waterfront

Newport County, RI, August 2016 – Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty announced the sale of a waterfront property at 179 Indian Avenue in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, for $2,000,000. The transaction represents the highest sale in Portsmouth this year.

The property, in a desirable area along the Sakonnet, features single-level living and a beach on almost two acres. Renovations in 2007 resulted in a large open living area with 2,590 square feet and a gourmet kitchen, with a lower-level guest space and private patio. An expansive waterfront deck looks over nearly 190 feet of water frontage.

Jay Serzan and Jose Aguon of Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty represented the seller and Dina Karousos and Nicki Lucenti, also with Gustave White Sotheby’s, brought the buyer.

“Since January, Portsmouth, Rhode Island, real estate has seen five sales over one million dollars, two of which were Gustave White listings,” commented co-owner Paul Leys. “The sale of this Indian Avenue property provides evidence that the luxury market, in locations such as Newport and its surroundings, is very active.”
