Narragansett estate sells in 29 days for $3.3 million

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A property at 25 Gunning Rock Drive, off Ocean Road in Narragansett, was sold Friday for $3.3 million, according to the town clerk’s office. The property was on the market for only 29 days, according to Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty, and the sale price was the second-highest achieved in Narragansett so far in 2013. Sales associates Jay Serzan and Jose Aguon of Gustave White Sotheby’s represented the seller, the Carol M. Cournoyer Trust. Tim Haxton of Re/MAX Flagship represented the buyer.

The Ocean Road property has nearly 300 feet of ocean frontage. It is sited on 4.4 acres along the rock-bound coastline in Bass Rock Farm Estates, a private community. The property was originally part of Whitehall, the estate of Isaac E. Emerson, inventor of the heartburn remedy Bromo-Seltzer. Whitehall was purchased by the Rotelli family of Providence in 1948. The original house was demolished in 1971, and the property was subdivided in the 1980s.
