Originally built in 1858, the Joseph B. Chapin/David A. Waldron House is a signature home showcasing historic luxury and architectural details throughout. Sitting on over an acre of land within the seaside Town of Barrington, the home welcomes you with a grand wrap around porch where you can sit and gaze upon the Copper Birch Tree said to have been planted in 1872 on the very first Arbor Day.
Step inside where you are greeted by a lovely living room with thick crown molding and beautiful hardwood floors, while a pair of French doors open into an elegant formal dining room featuring a brick fireplace.
The adjoining sitting room features inlaid parquet floors and a tiled fireplace, while effortlessly flowing into an eat-in chef’s kitchen with a large capacity fridge, breakfast bar, and a casual dining area. Just off the kitchen is a renovated half bath, as well as a spacious family room with exposed beams and custom built-ins.
A series of doors throughout the main level allow for access to different areas of the wraparound porch, including a screened-in area overlooking the scenic grounds.
Upstairs, the second floor showcases a large master suite featuring a private sitting room with fireplace, and an ensuite bathroom with a luxurious spa shower. This level also includes three more large bedrooms and two additional full baths, while the upper level provides a pair of bedrooms and a large cedar closet.
Set in Barrington’s desirable Alfred Drowne neighborhood, this magnificent home is just steps from the East Bay Bike Path, and is just down the road from several nearby parks and marinas. Take a drive to the Barrington Town Beach or get your shopping done in the quaint town center full of locally owned shops. Known for its top-ranked school system, Barrington offers quiet suburban living while still only 10 miles from Downtown Providence.
