Set on nearly an acre of land in Barrington’s desirable Nayatt Point neighborhood, this elegant Greek Revival was designed by Rhode Island architect Albert Harkness and built in 1940. The property has natural fenced privacy, brick exterior, a slate hip roof, and walking access to Narragansett Bay.
Upon entering the two story five bay home, the double bay windows allow plenty of light and frame the entry foyer while the sophisticated period details featuring wood moldings, rounded staircase, high ceilings, and arches are carried throughout.
The living room with a gas fireplace opens to the charming sunroom which offers access to the back patio and yard. The brick and bluestone patio is highlighted by a lovely stone wall.
The generous formal dining room is full of natural light and showcases chair rail molding and a stately chandelier. Perfect for entertaining, the dining room is conveniently located adjacent to the eat-in kitchen, boasting granite countertops and high end stainless steel appliances. The sunny breakfast nook is nestled by the front bay window.
The kitchen opens to the family room addition with a cathedral ceiling, a handsome wood burning fireplace, and built-in bookshelves. The family room also provides a second entrance to the yard.
Upstairs, three bedrooms feature custom designed closets and hardwood floors. One of the bedrooms has its own private bathroom, while the other two share the newly updated full bath off the hallway. The master bedroom suite offers a private full bath and spans across the back of the home and has views of the landscaped grounds.
Downstairs, the finished basement provides another living space with a brick fireplace, generous ceiling height, and a laundry room.
