Waterfront Homes for Sale in Warwick RI

Conimicut Water ViewWaterfront Homes for Sale in Warwick RI

To begin our dream home discovery, this week we dig into finding waterfront homes for sale in Warwick, RI. So, to illustrate, the coastal neighborhoods in our search are Warwick Neck; Conimicut, Gaspee Point and Oakland.

One of the first listings we found when googling “waterfront property” was in Warwick Neck. The property is on 455 Narragansett Bay Ave, Warwick, RI 02889. Unfortunately it is currently off the market. As were many, comparatively speaking, regarding strictly “waterfront” homes for sale in Warwick.  That isn’t to say that you won’t find more when googling this key word. But, water view, as an exact definition, has a lot more available. To learn more about Warwick Neck, read this article from the Providence Journal.

Before we go any further, it is important to consider what waterfront property really means. For instance, we found a listing of a property in Conimicut that met the criteria of coastal property but wasn’t exactly abutting the water. But, we will get into that in further detail later on in the article.

Waterfront Property and Flood Risks

Consequently, while searching waterfront properties many questions may arise.  Some of which include flood zones and flood insurance as well. That leads us to Realtors Land Institute.

“Always consider [the property’s] flood risk and plan accordingly,” recommends Asbury. Properties by water have a much higher chance of being impacted by flooding or other natural disasters. Land in high-risk flood areas can stand to take a serious toll on their long-term value if disaster strikes. Because waterfront property is at such a high-risk for water-related damages, the insurance for these properties can be so high, the cost alone often drives buyers away.”

Here are a few more things to consider when looking at waterfront property for sale

  • Do I have access to the water?
  • Are there speed or height restrictions for boats?
  • Can I build out onto the water?
  • Are there permits required for fishing on the water or using it for recreational purposes?
  • What are the insurance requirements?
  • Are water vehicles (such as jet skis) allowed on the water?

Gaspee Point Water-view Homes for Sale

Furthermore, there are water privilege properties versus waterfront properties. “Typically when referring to water privileges you are referring to community amenities that allow access to the water either through an easement or community-owned property. … This could cover community boat ramps, beaches, and piers.”

For instance, there is a home currently for sale in the neighborhood of Gaspee Point. It is 33 Gaspee Point Drive, Warwick, RI 02888. This listing is priced at $419,900. As a matter of fact, this listing boasts a fully remodeled home that also offers amazing water views of Narragansett Bay!
