This stunning English Tudor, designed by Royal Barry Wills, in the heart of Rhode Island offers six acres of meticulously maintained private park like grounds and nearly 5000 square feet of sunlit living space. What sets this Tudor apart from most is the grand hand hewn beams, steeply pitched gabled roofs, the playfully elaborate masonry, and decorative stone and brickwork of the craftsman who built it. This English Tudor is both unique and subtly majestic.
The inviting and spacious front foyer sparkles day or night as natural light filters through diamond patterned leaded leaded glass windows overlooking a tiny courtyard and a wonderful decorative fountain. Nearly every room in the home offers views of the park like property.
A large center island with a cooktop stove is just one of the highlights of the spacious kitchen. Decorative brick walls with an indoor grill and continuous windows adds to the flair of this room, which has become the gathering spot for friends and family. An elegant fireplaced dining room and living room complete the space needed for ultimate entertaining.
The cozy library off the spacious living room has it’s own fireplace to arrive at a total of three fireplaces on the first floor, with the fourth in the master bedroom.
A stunning staircase in the front foyer rises to the second floor opening an ambiance of relaxation. Six bedrooms, including a master suite, allow for everyone to have ample personal space. In the fireplaced master bedroom, the gable roofline and french doors opening to the exterior offers a charming touch while the spacious layout allows for a comfortable sitting area. A luxurious bathroom, including granite counters and a spa tub, is steps away. Five other bedrooms, each possessing a bathroom, means plenty of room for family and guests.
The interior detail and design are truly impressive yet the outdoor living area is arguably the jewel of the property. A detailed brick patio, strikingly similar to the façade of the home, opens up to a seemingly endless Bluestone terrace. Here, an 800 square foot 10 foot deep pool invites. Built in the Tudor style, the wonderful poolhouse is complete with a full bath, sauna, kitchenette and wall with of french doors which spill out to the patio and pool. Just steps away, a juxtaposition of sorts: a manmade pond offers serenity while a professional size tennis court suggests a spirited match.
Gorgeous, flowing gardens and meticulously chosen greenery shape the remainder of the grounds. Truly, this homestead sitting on 6 acres of property offers parklike privacy and peace yet…reality is located just down the road. Nationally ranked public schools are nearby as is a quintessential Main Street downtown complete with shopping, parks, waterfront and excellent restaurants.
