Listed by Stephen Antoni

Step onto a property that is the quintessence of rural New England. This idyllic Rhode Island property features swirls of old colonial life paired with contemporary farm living. Nestled neatly in the woods, completely enclosed by trees and hidden from the outside world, this 134-acre property shines in all four seasons with cascading rivers, century-old trees pregnant with leaves, animated wildlife, acres of aromatic peonies and mellifluous sounds of birds greeting you and inviting you to their home. Enjoy miles of cleared hiking paths that snake through the woods, affording you views of the vast rolling expanse visible throughout. The oceans of grass blows and ripples in the wind during the spring and summer, symbolizing the life and power this property possesses. The saturated bright leaves in the fall hint at the coming cold months and the exciting new beauty that brings. Miles of original stone walls define the property and two spacious barns provide shelter for animals and machines. A tranquil pond, Blue Herons, deer, ducks, swans, pear trees, blueberry and raspberry bushes, and grape arbors, all here for the feasting. Perched atop a hill overlooking the landscape is a new 3680 sf. custom quality built home featuring 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, 9′ ceilings, plush movie theatre in the lower level, spectacular views from every window. Hardwood floors throughout with state-of-the-art HVAC system. Barns are ready for your animals, hobbies or collections. Truly a must-see property.






1128 Ives Road | Warwick | $3,595,000

Listed by Amy I. Doorley-Lucas

Waterfront on The Potowomut River, a perfect blend of town and country. This unique dwelling, home of the late U.S. 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.





79 Ridge Road | Bristol | $2,560,000

Tucked away in the Highlands, yet close to the shops, restaurants, and attractions of Bristol, this thoroughly and thoughtfully renovated home sits amidst park-like grounds. The very best original craftsmanship of this home was retained, while all the amenities for ease of modern living were added. The details here are reminiscent of the days of grand old seaside summer homes, yet the aesthetic has been updated to seamlessly blend new with old. In the eat-in kitchen, custom cabinetry and vintage-style lighting pair with Viking appliances. A large dining room and great room with fireplace continue the flow of rooms. A first-floor home office has ample closet space and could do double duty as a bedroom, and the partially finished basement offers additional flex space. Upstairs, five bedrooms and three full bathrooms occupy the second floor, with water views from many of the windows. The primary bedroom with en suite bath and walk-in closet has vaulted ceilings and abundant natural light. Climb the stairs to the attic for an architectural treat: a room wrapped in original woodwork that calls to mind Bristol’s yacht-building heritage. Outside, enjoy the patio and stone walls, water feature, fire pit, and saltwater swimming pool. The guest cottage offers a full bathroom, kitchenette, living space and a heated garage bay. A separate garage has four stalls and unfinished space above. Your opportunity to experience turnkey living just in time for summer in the Highlands has arrived.
