The Preserve at Boulder Hills, private club and residences
3500 rolling, wooded acres of open space easily removes you from a busy life to privacy and luxury where centuries old dry stacked stone walls stand as evidence of man’s toils to till and plant, to imagine and create. That mission continues today.
Set alongside the busy I-95 corridor is this private place that few Rhode Islanders know exists. Located just 25 minutes from Providence, an hour from Boston, and 2.5 hours from NYC, The Preserve is a draw for many out-of-state member owners that now happily call Rhode Island their home. With a sprawling campus of unspoiled landscapes, The Preserve is also a natural sanctuary where celebrities, CEOs, families, and sports figures find privacy and security and a sense of serenity.
With a growing residential community at the Preserve, Developer Paul Mihailides, a sportsman and Rhode Island resident, is elevating Rhode Island real estate to another level, setting sales records monthly and creating value for Preserve member residents. Paul Mihailides describes, “close to highways, rail, and sea, with every amenity available including the most efficient airport, beautiful beaches, fishing seaports, restaurants, services for food, medical, shopping, and all the adventure New England has to offer.”
Private residences available at the Preserve include eleven new Elegant Townhomes offering gourmet kitchens, vaulted ceilings, in-home elevators, and integrated garages. Red cedar trimmed two, three- and four-bedroom custom homes are built with wide plank wood floors, first floor master suites, and stone fireplaces. The stunning Hilltop Lodge has 19 luxurious, one-level condominiums, where nothing is overlooked, except the horizon out your windows.
Everything begins with thoughtful excavation and finishes with your custom details. Selecting your special home now means pre-construction pricing and time to build your dreams into the quintessential base camp afforded by membership. World-class championship golf on a gorgeous course designed by award-winning golf architect, Robert McNeil expands across long stretches of hills and bends for ponds of rainbow trout.
Mornings climbing rock walls, fly-fishing, or soaring on a zip line is followed by relaxing in a hobbit hillside home magically carved into the earth, on the deck of a yurt or a tall tree house, all with concierge service. As winter eases off the calendar, clay tennis, croquet and paddle courts will return to life, surrounding a new spa facility with its handsome pool house.
Some fifty miles of trails for cross country skiing are losing their white blanket, opening the way for warm days of hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, riding ATV’s and hours of stargazing. The groomed green Scotch plaid of a 10,000 square foot putting green and bocce court sit above the country’s longest indoor shooting range.
Shooters are surrounded with unsurpassed choices including an indoor range renowned as America’s longest, and a newly expanded and challenging world-class sporting clays course with post and beam covered decks.
Five stands, and archery ranges border tall sorghum fields where pheasants hide and the newest amenity, the members’ Lookout Lodge where overhead porch heaters assure comfort while you improve your clay shooting skills with over 250 different shot presentations.
All is complemented by The Sporting Shoppe, outfitted for your outdoor needs. Silenced by forests, Route 95 is just minutes to the West. An easy drive east on Route 138 takes you to colonial Kingston and its high-speed rails, the finest beaches in our 400 miles of shoreline, Newport mansions, Cliff Walk, fishing, sailing and dining.
Members are just minutes from walking edges of salt pond, riding waves or paddling kayaks. Block Island, treasured for its open beaches, fishing tournaments and fine dining is a ferry ride away; closer by charter boat to the storied fishing grounds. New England has so much to offer; The Preserve Club & Residences is the heart of all your adventures and dreams, and it all starts with your new home.
