Built c. 1840, this historic North Kingstown farmhouse features an open front porch and an attached barn set on over an acre of land along Post Road by the edge of Wickford Village and the tip of Mill Cove. The yard provides a mix of sunny spaces and shaded areas, with fieldstone walls, green lawns, and wooded trails. Once inside, the home’s layout has plenty of light and extra spaces, giving it the versatility to adapt to your needs.
The gracious living room with exposed beams has a wall of glass and a bit of a ballroom feel, complete with a fireplace. The formal dining room is a great setting for meals complete with a built-in china cabinet. Through a convenient tuck-away office space is the kitchen with a large eating area and fireplace. Completing the first level are a half bath with a laundry and first floor master bedroom with an unfinished master bath.
The second floor, over the main part of the house, has two generous bedrooms each with separate sitting rooms that share a small bath. The smaller bedrooms above the kitchen are in need of attention, but could be nicely developed as a second suite for an au pair, guests, or extended family, while also offering the opportunity for a potential bed & breakfast.
To top it off, Wickford Village is close by allowing you take advantage of the numerous shops and cafes. You can also enjoy the beauty of Wilson Park and its fields, courts, and recreation area. The Wickford area is set right on Narragansett Bay and is home to multiple marinas and wharfs as well as the North Kingstown Town Beach. The Wickford Train Station and easy highway access give you multiple options to commute to Providence and its acclaimed theaters and restaurants.
