When you are in the market for a new home, there are lots of choices to make, location being the first. Do you want to be in the middle of the action, or off in the countryside? In a small, historic town or a family-friendly suburb where the kids stay out until the streetlights come on? With this property, at 12 Pine Top Road in Barrington, you don’t have to choose.
From the curb, on a quiet cul-de-sac, this contemporary colonial is the quintessential suburban family home, in one of Rhode Island’s most sought-after zip codes. It features four large bedrooms, including a master suite with a full bathroom, and more than 2,400 square feet of total living space. With hardwood floors and large windows throughout the open floor plan, the home is illuminated with abundant natural light.
Step out back, and it’s a different property altogether: a private, nature lover’s paradise with nearly two acres of stone walls, green grass, mature trees – and even a pond. The view out back is dominated by the property’s countless deciduous trees, which provide shade in the summer and an eye-popping, classic New England show in autumn, their colors reflecting off the glassy water. A large deck provides an ideal spot for surveying and enjoying your surroundings.
Additional features include a front porch, two-car garage, a partially finished basement with an additional 1,000 square feet of space, newer windows throughout the home, and an underground sprinkler system to help keep this expansive property verdant and irrigated.
Barrington has long been known as a great place to raise a family, with a lovely, active waterfront and boating community as well as access to Providence and Boston — but with 12 Pine Top Road, you can have all that, and green acres, too.
