Lila Delman Real Estate announced today the sale of 178 Prospect Farm Road. The property sold for $1,755,000.

Lila Delman Associates represented both sides of the transaction with Anne Northup Burns representing the seller and Annie Becker representing the buyer. 

This transaction marks the 2nd highest home sale in Portsmouth year-to-date, according to data maintained by the Rhode Island Statewide MLS.

“Portsmouth offers an exceptional array of properties with water amenities,” commented Anne Northup Burns in a press release. “While savvy second home buyers are looking in Portsmouth as an alternative to the Cape and the Hamptons, full time residents value neighborhood living while still being close to Newport, Providence and Boston.”

“Buyers are finding great value in Portsmouth, enjoying the beauty and coastal lifestyle afforded to residents of Aquidneck Island,” added Annie Becker in the release.

Measuring 5,236 square feet, the property features four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a rare 116-foot dock and 163 feet of shoreline with a swimmable beach.
