Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty this week announced the sale of 5 Ohio Road for $4,500,000.

The home, part of the estate of John C. Whitehead, former Chairman of Goldman Sachs and ninth United States Deputy Secretary of State, is an extraordinary 4.7 acre oceanfront property with frontage on Lloyds Beach, surrounded by 20 acres of conservation land.

Located on the south-western tip of Sakonnet Point, the circa 1939 converted dairy barn features panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean out to Cuttyhunk and the Elizabeth Islands, Sakonnet Lighthouse, and Aquidneck Island and is surrounded by 20 acres of conservation land.
