This new listing is a spacious, renovated harbor home with wonderful water views.
The initial view of this spectacular home is one of great curb appeal, gorgeous landscaping with plentiful gardens and a beachy, Nantucket shingled design. But there’s more…so much more. The home, which was recently completely renovated, sits just a stone’s throw from the Barrington River in a tight knit, family oriented neighborhood.
This sprawling home has perfect space for a growing family but also offers pockets for peace and relaxation. With five livable floors, this home provides a place for everyone…and everything. The kitchen, the heart of every home, has all the modern amenities on someone’s wish list: Granite counters, hand painted, custom cabinetry with a built-in china cupboard and wine rack, go beautifully with the high end custom paneled appliances which match the cabinets for a very intergrated look.
Endless windows allow for sunlight to flood this space while at the same time, provides views out to the private, pristine backyard. A true hostess would love the convenience of creating a dish in the kitchen and presenting it in the connecting dining room. Sitting here, your views of the water through a literal wall of windows, would certainly improve any dinner conversation. An added bonus is a small deck off this side of the house which is ideal for cocktails and sunsets. Completing this level is a formal living room, with fireplace. Again, light galore makes it bright and cheery.
A few steps down, a den area with handcrafted built-ins and plentiful space for the entire family to gather makes for a comfortable setting. A half bath and organized laundry room are nearby.
Down one more flight is the absolute perfect kid playroom. Tiled floors and space aplenty for every toy and game imaginable.
Upstairs, a spacious guestroom with full bathroom is a welcome sight for any visitor. Three other bedrooms, all with custom closets, share a large, full bathroom.
The master suite, one more short flight up, offers the ideal sanctuary for busy adults. The oversized room has high ceilings and plenty of natural light. Sanity could be discovered in the sunken, hydrothermal tub in the spacious bath. A walk in shower and double vanity showcase beautiful tile work. A huge walk in closet, across the hall, is every girls’ dream.
The consummate characteristic of this master space is the east facing private deck. Here, morning coffee could be paired with a brilliant sunrise and cool breeze. It is the ideal vantage point for watching sailors and boaters alike board their vessels as they make their way to open waters. Lastly, it is a place for peace and reflection amidst the welcome noises of the harbor. The seagull calls, clanging halyards and evening colors at the nearby yacht club offer the perfect symphony for coastal living.
A gorgeous bluestone double patio pleasantly dominates the space of the backyard creating the perfect spot for gatherings of family and friends alike. A custom built stone fire pit makes for the ideal location for S’mores and star lit stories. Natural shade is provided by ancient Maple and Beech trees while a luscious green lawn sets the site for games of tag and touch football.
This home’s location allows for a short walk to the Barrington village shops ,bike path and restaurants. Blue Ribbon schools, the Rhode Island Country Club, the Barrington Yacht Club and sandy beaches are just minutes away. Providence, the Capital city is only 12 miles away; Boston a mere 60 miles.
