Vacation style on the Barrington waterfront


This wonderful waterfront contemporary at 6 Leslie Avenue in Barrington sits directly on Bullock’s Cove and offers breathtaking views from nearly every room. This location is so ideal, it's like waking up every morning in a dream vacation home—with keys you never need return.

The entrance welcomes you with a large front porch with detailed balusters, providing ample space for outdoor seating.  The main door leads to an entrance vestibule with French door access to the interior of the home—a feature that is uniquely appreciated in the winter. Vaulted skylit ceilings with recessed lighting soar above the family room, while a cozy wood stove to makes the space the warm heart of the home.

With an open floor plan that seamlessly flows into an eat-in kitchen and dining area, and a wall of glass revealing stunning views of the cove, the home is both light-filled and ideal for entertaining.

The recently-updated kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and a large center island with a breakfast bar. An adjacent raised deck offers outside dining space and includes a hot tub overlooking the water. A full bath and large bedroom round out the first floor.

The second floor master suite includes a an expansive bathroom with a whirlpool tub and a beautifully tiled glass door shower—also with water views. A second level deck provides a perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee while taking in the unobstructed views all the way to the Providence River. The second floor also includes a skylit office and a cozy sitting area overlooking the family room.

The waterfront just outside your door is perfect for boating and fishing, with easy access to local marinas, the East Bay Bike Path, Haines Memorial State Park, and Barrington's charming downtown area, filled with local shops and restaurants.
