Quonochontaug Central Beach

three small and waterfront beach communities in Charlestown RI: West Beach, Central Beach and East Beach.

Actually after Regis Philbin  kept talking about Quonochontaug on his morning talk show after spending time here, I told people Charlestown real estate was going to be bought up by buyers from New York and Connecticut to this part of the state.  It did happen.  If you look at the tax rolls you will see that 80% of the property owned in here is out of state residents. Quonnie is high end luxury RI real estate and it is a rare find for a cottage under $500,000.   Watchful eyes are always on the lookout for a possible ‘silent’ sale from word of mouth through neighbors of a possible event property that may surface for sale.  Dang!  I wish I hadn’t passed up that rambling beach cottage years ago in Quonnie.
