Everyone knows that if you want a short commute to Providence, good schools, and a nice community to raise a family, Barrington is on the short list of towns to check out. There are lots of nice properties in this waterfront East Bay town, and that can make it hard for homes, even very nice ones, to stand out in a crowded market.
Not so with 15 Seaview Drive, an absolutely stunning colonial on an acre of land on a quiet cul-de-sac, and, as the name implies, a view of the “sea.”
In this case the “sea” is the tidal Palmer River, an exquisite ribbon that leads from Narragansett Bay past the restaurants and shops of Warren’s waterfront, golf courses and farmlands, into rural Rehoboth, Mass.. An afternoon on the Palmer is best enjoyed from the quiet solitude of a canoe or kayak, with the landscapes and views of nesting osprey, egrets, and herons, suggesting you are worlds away from civilization.
The well-manicured and maintained landscaping includes mature plantings, a semi-circular driveway, and an irrigation system to keep it all effortlessly lush.
With five bedrooms, three full bathrooms and a half-bathroom over nearly 4,000 square feet of living space, there is plenty of room to relax. The granite and stainless steel chef’s kitchen features a peninsula with a sink and overhang with seating for four, and a center island with a gas cook top and gleaming stainless hood.
Rooms are large, with 9-foot ceilings on the first floor, providing a perfect space for entertaining. Gleaming hardwoods and skylights overhead ensure rooms are light-filled and bright. Multiple zones of climate control and two fireplaces keep this home warm and cozy in the winter, and cool in the dog days of summer. The master suite is an oasis with a large walk-in closet, a spa tub, tiled shower and double vanity.
Additional features include a three-car garage, a second-floor laundry, central vacuum, new Anderson windows and a composite deck, cedar fencing, an emergency generator capable of keeping the entire house powered, and new exterior paint.
