Waterfront on The Potowomut River, a perfect blend of Town and Country. This unique dwelling, home of the late US Senator John Chafee, sits on high ground with sweeping views of acre upon acre of conserved rolling meadows, salt marsh and bending river rich with songbirds, waterfowl and field animal life. In that the house is set atop a slope, one enters an upper-floor front hall, steps onto a balcony, looks over a double-height living room and beholds, through an immense two-story Palladian window, field and stream beyond. South windows pull in light on winter days and below the balcony nestles a more intimate space for cocktails by the fire on winter nights. A private study provides an inner fireplace for those who enjoy a book or television seated by a blaze. To the south extends a brick terrace beneath a thick grape arbor for cool al fresco luncheons on hot summer days and front row seating at sunset. Enjoy a morning coffee or an evening drink while scanning the meadows and river from an exterior covered balcony above. A gambrel-roofed barn contains an ample hayloft for a studio or recreation with four horse stalls below. Ideal family compound or max of three single family homes. Kayak, paddleboard from your property. Walk to local dining or a short bike/car ride to the restaurants and marinas by Main Street, East Greenwich. Goddard State Park farmers market, scenic walking trails, coastline access, golf and equestrian facilities across the way. TF Green Int airport 9.6mi.
