8 Lighthouse Lane
Gorgeous, solidly built custom home in a breathtaking private waterfront setting, on over an acre of manicured grounds with panoramic views of Narragansett Bay to the west and a verdant estuary brimming with wildlife to the south. A lovely marble vestibule leads to an imposing great room with vaulted ceilings, rich wood floors and a fireplace. A magnificent curved staircase leads to a second floor promenade. Well-appointed for hosting both intimate casual get togethers and large formal gatherings, this home boasts a gourmet kitchen, an elegant formal dining room, a charming kitchen seating nook, and a sizable stone patio along the estuary with a striped awning and stone walls. Custom cabinetry is abundant - in the great room, master bedroom corridor, den, kitchen, adjoining pantry, and first floor laundry room. Special features include a cozy den and office area with spectacular sunset water views, a heated garage, a covered outdoor grilling area equipped with a gas line, an enhanced alarm system which sounds when vehicles enter the circular driveway, and a side yard perfectly situated for phenomenal birdwatching. The second floor includes three bedrooms, a full bath and side entrance, that are separated from the first floor master bedroom suite, and ideally suited for teenaged children or visiting guests. Just a stone’s throw from the beach, but no flood insurance is required. Barrington is just minutes away from Providence and only an hour or so commute to Boston.
