About Wilder (Mac) Snodgrass
I was raised in New England and have life-long interests in sailing and photography. I served 26 years on active duty in the US Army retiring as Colonel in 1989 and for the next 18 years I did leadership development consulting for clients in business, government, and academia. My wife, Enedina is a retired college professor and an actress (SAG/AFTRA). She was raised in El Paso where we met in college and were married after graduation in Dec 1961. We celebrated our golden anniversary in 2011. We have two sons and love spending vacation time here with them and their families. We rent this home so we can afford to keep it available to us for family vacations together!
Wilder (Mac) Snodgrass purchased this house in 1986
Why Wilder (Mac) Snodgrass chose Portsmouth
We fell in love with Newport in 1976 when I was a student as the US Naval War College, and resolved to live here in retirement. We chose this waterfront house for its stunning views and ideal location. I worked from this home for 18 years and felt rewarded and refreshed every day by the ever-changing natural environment.
What makes this house unique
The natural beauty that surrounds this home nourishes, renews, and restores the human spirit. We enjoy vacation time with our family and friends; morning or afternoons dips in salt water from our own beach and we love the outdoor shower, air-drying in the hammock. I enjoy early mornings on the deck with fresh coffee and breakfast. Fresh seafood and on the grill; live theater productions of excellent quality at the 2d Story Theater in Warren, RI; burgers at 501 Park Ave; dinners at nearby 15 point Road, and lots of other excellent restaurants nearby; museum, historic mansions and great entertainment in Newport and Bristol RI; sailing and fishing in Narragansett Bay; nearby ocean swimming and miles of white sandy beaches at Horse neck Beach in Massachusetts, and in Narragansett RI. Green Animal Farms in Portsmouth, RI; Colt State Park in Bristol, RI; RISD museum and Water Fire illuminations on summer evening in Providence, RI; the Whaling Museum in New Bedford, MA; and the many attractions in Boston, Cape cod, and the Islands.
