Located in Barrington’s historic Alfred Drown neighborhood, the Charles Ruland House rests on a professionally landscaped half acre with wonderful gardens and patio areas just steps from a small beach.
Complete with an addition constructed in 2006, the home boasts marvelous water views from nearly every room and is flooded with natural light accentuating the high ceilings and beautifully finished Southern white pine plank flooring.
The property has plenty of charm and character and has a modern, up-to-date addition with an expansive cook’s kitchen including an oversized island overlooking the family room with a handsome wood-burning fireplace and dining nook.
The kitchen also provides access to the formal dining room and mudroom which steps out to a wonderful patio and pergola for outdoor dining and entertaining. Back inside, the living room and den complete the first level and provide ample space for socializing and relaxation.
The home features four spacious bedrooms including the expansive master suite with a walk-in closet and private full bath. A full bath off the hall services the remaining three bedrooms and offers a luxurious jacuzzi tub and separate steam shower. The third floor offers two rooms that could easily be utilized as additional bedrooms.
The property includes two additional free-standing separate buildings: a heated studio suitable for an artist’s or woodworking studio as well as a legal two bedroom rental cottage.
This home is in a great location just a short stroll from several delightful neighborhood sandy beaches. Scenic Echo Lake and the bike path are also within easy walking distance. This property is also less than two miles from the town beach and a short drive from the nearby Barrington Shopping Center and Bayside Family YMCA. Enjoy bike rides down the East Bay Bike Path, as well as convenient access to the several yacht clubs and marinas. Known for having one of the top-ranked school systems in Rhode Island, this area is also just 10 miles from all the dining, entertainment, and business opportunities of Downtown Providence.
