Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty Lists the Estate That Inspired “The Conjuring” Franchise

Credit: Blueflash Photography

Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty proudly brings 1677 Round Top Road to market. Listed at $1,200,000, the c.1826 home that inspired the horror franchise “The Conjuring” is one of the most well-known haunted houses in the United States. The property is represented by The Blackstone Team of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty.

Legend has it, the home is haunted by the presence of Bathsheba Sherman, who lived in the house in the 1800’s. To this day, countless happenings have been reported. The chilling stories, incidents, and recollections of residents and visitors of the property have been told in dozens of media productions including books, movies, and television shows.

The critically acclaimed original movie was based on accounts taken from inhabitants of this fourteen-room farmhouse. Many qualified paranormal researchers have been invited into the home – most famously Ed and Lorraine Warren, who founded the oldest ghost hunting team in New England. In the 1970’s, the Warrens were hired to rid the home of its evil. They have confirmed that the events depicted in “The Conjuring” franchise did transpire.

Currently, the full functioning restored farmhouse in Harrisville is rented overnight to paranormal researchers, ghost hunters, and folks of the like. Day events, tours, and live streams comprise the numerous ways that the sellers have created an income-producing property. The true potential though is awaiting the next caretakers.

“This is the power of the Sotheby’s Brand,” says Ben Kean, Junior Partner and Sales Associate of The Blackstone Team. “Representing and marketing this type of property takes a professional with experience and expertise.”

According to Ray Mott, Broker/Co-Owner of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty, “1677 Round Top Road is a property with such a fascinating background, and we are pleased to have listed this interesting home.”

Agents of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty, some of the most consistently recognized high-end specialists in the luxury market, value the unique.

“The “Conjuring” estate is an intriguing offering in northern Rhode Island. We are happy that The Blackstone Team has listed this property with such noteworthy historical significance,” adds Judy Chace, Broker/Co-Owner of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty.

Ben Gugliemi, Sales Associate of The Blackstone Team adds, “We are thrilled to be selected to represent this historic one-of-a-kind property.”

Located on eight acres, the home is just over 3,000 square feet and features three bedrooms and one- and one-half bathrooms. Interested parties must provide proof of funds for in-person viewing of property and sign an NDA for release of full property financials. Please contact Ben Kean 401-954-3965 or Ben Gugliemi 401-339-7966 for more information. Detailed pro forma available upon request to qualified buyers.

Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty Sells Historic Home in Tiverton

Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to announce the sale of 72 Fogland Road for $3,270,000. Fogbottom Farm is situated on nearly five acres of farm coast grounds and includes a c. 1808 Federal style five-bedroom home, a two-bedroom guest house, and barn. The seller was represented by Cherry Arnold, Sales Associate and Allison Oster Dessel, Sales Associate: both of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty. Rebecca Rubin of Residential Properties, Ltd. represented the buyer.

According to data available from Rhode Island Statewide Multiple Listing Service, this is the most expensive home sale in Tiverton since 2013 and one of only four homes ever sold for more than $3M in the municipality. Agents of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty have represented six clients in the top twelve Tiverton single family sales year to date.

With breathtaking panoramic views of Sakonnet Passage and the Atlantic Ocean, the estate is considered to be one of the crown jewels of South Tiverton and has had just five owners in 200 years.

Led by two of the firm’s top agents, the owners of this significant property chose Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty to represent the marketing and sale of their one-of-a-kind coastal compound.

“Having known the owners since I was a teenager, I have long admired this very special property,” said Cherry Arnold. “It has been an honor and a highlight of my career to work with them in transferring Fogbottom Farm on to the very fortunate next stewards.” 

The sale of Fogbottom Farm is the third significant historical Tiverton property Cherry Arnold has sold in the last three years. 285 Stone Church Road, the William Witridge Estate c. 1770, was sold in November 2020 and 3617 Main Road, the Captain Ely Hammond House c. 1880 was sold in July 2019.

Their love and care for the property is evident in every space, inside and out. I am beyond proud to have been a part of this sale, and I know wonderful memories will be made by the new owners of Fogbottom Farm.

Interior Design Tips for a Happier Home

NEWPORT INTERIOR DESIGNER ALLY MALONEY ON DECOR WITH INTENT – ADD PEACE AND TRANQUILITY TO YOUR SPACE.

The Master Bedroom of #TheNewportCondo.

Now that we’re all used to spending an increased amount of time at home, creating a space that conforms and adds to your lifestyle is top of mind. Craving a bit more serenity in your day-to-day? Us too. Here are our top tips to add a touch of tranquility to your home with a few simple updates.

  • LET THERE BE LIGHT
    Never underestimate the power of lighting. Overhead lighting is great but can be a bit harsh depending on the activity. Add options and ambience to your space with table lamps and wall sconces- you can even add color changing smart bulbs for a whole new vibe that can change with your mood!
  • COLOR IS KING
    Whether it’s soothing spa shades or upbeat bright colors, play with color in a way that speaks to your spirit. Liven a darker room with a fun pop of orange decor, or give your bathroom that soothing essence you’ve always desired with a few coats of soft grey paint.
  • MAKE IT FLOW
    The way your home is laid out makes all the difference both in daily life and when it comes to entertaining. Consider rethinking your furniture layout or adding functionality with extra accent stools- making your space work for you is the best way to ensure happiness day to day.
  • OPTIMIZE ORGANIZATION
    Finding the right ‘home’ for everything you own can seem like an uphill battle. Focus on prioritizing convenience, whether that’s an aptly placed hook by the door for your keys or a gift wrapping station in your home office. Optimize your home to fit your needs, and every day stressors will become less prominent.
  • LOVE WHERE YOU LIVE
    Speaking of belongings, whether framed photos of loved ones or beloved trinkets from your favorite vacation spot, display the things you love around your home. Not only will this add a personal touch, it is a foolproof way to decorate any space. Surrounding yourself with things that make you smile and emulate happy memories is the quickest way to increase your mood in your home.

CONSIDERING AN UPCOMING MOVE? MAKE SURE TO CONTACT THE DYNAMIC TEAMS AT MOTT & CHACE SOTHEBY’S INTERNATIONAL REALTY AND MALONEY INTERIORS EARLY ON IN THE PROCESS TO SET YOURSELF UP FOR SUCCESS.

Sold for the first time since the home was built in 1937, the stately brick home is thoughtfully designed with the utmost attention to detail. The sale consists of three lots of record – the main house, the garden lot and the tennis court.

Built by architect Albert Harkness for the daughter of John R. Freeman, for whom the street and the well-known Freeman plat were named, the nearly 4,000 square foot home features six bedrooms and four and two half bathrooms.
