This grand home is the epitome of elegance. Located in the desirable Rumstick Point area, this authentic Georgian, built in 1880, makes quite the first impression. The sweeping driveway allows for an expansive view of the home and property, which is meticulously adorned with extensive landscaping and precious trees that are both unique and priceless. Walking up to the gray (custom color) home, one passes original wooden pillars, exterior dental molding and other architectural accompaniments such as ogee caps and pediments. As you pass through the massive, custom wooden Dutch door and enter the spacious foyer, the decision as to which direction to venture in next will be quite challenging. The living room boasts detailed woodwork: gorgeous hardwood floors (which are also found throughout the home), 4 glorious layers of Georgian molding and decorative wainscoting. A sense of warmth permeates the room thanks to the radiant heating system and the gas fireplace that is beautifully adorned with a custom built mantle. Incredible floor to ceiling windows offer views of the 3.4 acres of property. A marble gazebo with a wrought iron decorative top purchased at the famous Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Flower Show in London is smartly placed in the side yard. Imagine this treasured antique as a centerpiece to a family wedding or a backdrop for prom pictures. The small library is custom made from architectural paneling in New York City with outstanding details. The spacious kitchen demands for entertaining and celebration. The host could easily prep and prepare utilizing Miele appliances, a subzero refrigerator and 2 sinks while socializing with friends at the central island. Generous windows allow for sunlight to reflect off the hand finished kitchen cabinets and the beautiful granite countertops. A spacious sitting area, hardwood floors and raised fireplace make this room the envy of all. The culinary festivities could easily flow in to the nearby dining room. This space is flooded with light from large windows and a French Baccarat chandelier. Custom finishes such as the hand rubbed doors and Scalamandre wallpaper speak to the splendor of the room. Sunlight abounds as you venture towards another wing of this magnificent home. A sitting room encased in Thermopane windows allows for views of the gardens. Several steps ahead, another voluminous room for the family to gather in. Endless windows make you feel as if the outdoors have been invited in. The brilliant woodwork is hand finished Oakwood with a custom glaze. Don’t miss the extensive period details right down to the doorknobs on the French doors, which when open, pour out on to an enormous patio. The brick surface, stone walls, white pergola and protective awning rival the rear courtyard of any New England Inn. This bountiful space would allow for outdoor celebrations and endless opportunities to commune with nature. Finally, you enter a very large room. This oversized space, complete with hardwood floors and detailed walls could serve as a Zen space for yoga, training space for dance and most certainly a glamorous gathering spot for family reunions and holidays. Adjoining is a small gym with glass walls allowing you to invite nature in. A spacious office area complete with full bathroom and closets could serve as a guest suite. Returning to the foyer and ascending the spiral staircase with a hand carved railing takes you to the second floor and additional grandeur. Perhaps one of the greatest attractions of this remarkable home is the master suite. This seemingly boundless space could quite possibly be the elusive secret to a happy marriage. His and her bathrooms with marble and gold accents throughout offer individual privacy and space. Carved out niches for rest and repose in addition to separate dressing rooms and walk-in closets complete this luxurious wing. French doors allow for breathtaking views of the gardens as well as winter water views. Also on this second floor are two tasteful bedrooms, each with a full bathroom. Plenty of closet space allows for organization and storage. On the third floor is a spacious suite with its own bathroom. Above the 2 car garage is an in-law apartment complete with bedroom, kitchen and full bath. Technology allows for a intercom system and extensive alarm throughout the property. This home, which has been painstakingly maintained while staying true to the Georgian historical period, is just over a mile from the shops and restaurants of Barrington; nearby to a Blue Ribbon elementary school and a short walk to the shores of Narragansett Bay. Elegance, expanse and convenience. A win, win, win.
