Property Description

An estate offering solitude and serenity…as well as convenience to major highways. A win, win, win. This twelve acre estate offers a natural setting of lush landscaping, a burbling river out to Narragansett Bay as well as a gorgeous, spacious home beckoning a new family to establish roots, enjoy life and create memories. Car enthusiasts will delight in an abundance of garage space while horse lovers could roam and run through the wandering acreage. The lengthy drive in to the property is enveloped by mature, majestic trees. Their bases, some several feet in diameter, stand as sentries to the home. Weeping branches from the mighty Beech trees form a canopy over the entrance, and instantaneously, it is mood altering. Chaos and stress are pushed to the curb and by the time you arrive at the house, a sense of peace has settled over you. The grounds are lush and park like offering plenty of room for games on the rolling lawns or calming walks down to the river. Once there, explore the habitat of local birds or push off on a beached kayak and be among them. Grab a worthy opponent for a singles match on the private tennis courts or just relax on the wooden benches strategically placed in the shade of the trees and take it all in. The only thing rivaling the loveliness of the grounds is the home itself. A centered front door, with attractive portico and complimentary peak, welcome all to the grandeur of this Colonial Style home. Dental molding along the roof line and striking black shutters complete the stylish appearance of this stately home. A large, screened porch with extra high ceilings, wrapping half way around the home, offers a wonderful spot for family to gather and take in all the sights of the outdoors while protected from the elements. From any chair, appreciate the tableau of the rolling lawn and water, edged by the cat tails and reeds while dwarfed by the giant Oaks. Once inside, appreciate that this is a home desiring life, movement and levity. As with any property, the kitchen tends to be the heart of the home. In this large, sun filled space, the rhythm is palpable as it is the perfect meeting spot to rehash the day. The spacious sitting room flows through the food prep area, past the endless cabinet and storage possibilities right into a gorgeous butler's pantry. It is the epitome of old charm blending efficiently with a modern working space utilizing the highest of stainless steel appliances of today. From the kitchen, several different routes will take you through the entirety of the home. Starting on the first floor, traveling through hallways with hand carved details, past window seats and shelving, the path leads to a large sitting room. An enormous picture window allows the sunlight to permeate the room while at the same time, a hearth and cavernous fireplace offer a different sense of warmth and coziness. A formal living room offers custom built in shelves and cabinets for endless tombs of books and memorabilia. A large study with private bathroom is just steps away. Ascending the grand wooden stairs, it takes on the feeling of a continuous, charming country inn. Each of the six bedrooms is beautifully designed with a unique style and look yet share the qualities one desires in roominess and closet space. The master suite also boasts the added creature comfort of an original fireplace. A detached garage, a stone throw from the house, offers room for 12 vehicles. A vast collection of cars could be securely kept and cared for here. And if you're a fan of real horse power, the property could legally accommodate up to two equines and would provide plenty of ground for daily rides. Lastly, a charming cottage, located on the picturesque grounds, serves as an incredible bonus to the property. The 1230 square foot cottage offers 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, an expansive living room with working fireplace as well as an office and dining area. Or dine outside on the spacious farmer's porch overlooking the yard. The cottage would be excellent guest quarters or serve as a worthwhile rental property. This home has been lovingly maintained and has even gone through a series of recent upgrades with a new septic system and electrical work. This gorgeous estate offers a real sense of privacy and solitude yet reality is just down the road. A drive in to town is just five minutes while the trek to the capital city is under a half hour. The property, located in Warwick, is also ideally located on the 95 corridor running north to Boston and south to New York.
