NARRAGANSETT -- A house near the Dunes Club in Narragansett was sold last week for $6,075,000, which is
the second-highest price ever achieved for a Narragansett property, according to Lila Delman Real Estate.
The gated, beachfront home sits on a 1.9-acre parcel at 131 Boston Neck Road. Melanie Delman, president of Lila
Delman Real Estate, was assisted by associate Stella Fitzsimmons in the sale.
The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home was sold by Nicole Berg, of Syosset, N.Y., who purchased it in June
2012 for $4,620,000, according to town records. The buyers are Francis Barry III and Daria Becker Barry.
Berg had purchased the the house from Alan and Debra Wasserman, who bought the place in 1994 from Arthur
Little, the son of the late Textron Inc. founder, Royal Little.
The house has been featured twice as a Providence Journal "House of the Week." In 1993, a Journal story
identified Royal Little as the one who had the house built in 1941, and it said the house was moved south and up
on top of the dunes in 1944 after a hurricane "deposited a significant rock" through the front of the residence.
The story also said that the semicircular, beachfront stone terrace, which "looks like a helicopter pad -- and helicopters did land there" was built to protect the
house from the ocean.
According to data from the Rhode Island Statewide Multiple Listing Service, this marks the second-highest sale in Narragansett history. The only higher sale,
which occurred in 2010, was for $6.4 million.
