Once owned by the famed theater producer, Tommy Brent, the exceptional “Farmhouse By The Sea” is set on five acres of beautiful pastoral land in Matunuck, accented by stone walls, chestnut trees, gardens, fragrant lilac and wisteria vines. Just a short stroll to the Matunuck coastline and beaches, a picturesque wraparound porch adorns this historic Greek Revival that has been visited by the likes of Marlon Brando, Carol Channing, and Groucho Marx.
A central hall with hardwood floors welcomes all into the home and is abutted by an oversized living room great for entertaining guests. The expansive dining room is ideal for hosting family and friends and abuts the large open kitchen. Completing the main level is a convenient full bath along with three generous bedrooms.
Four additional bedrooms, and a second full bath are located on the second floor where you can step out to the balcony and look out over the idyllic private grounds and distant water views.
Outside are multiple delightful outdoor settings including a brick patio, fire pit and a gorgeous rustic trellis. All enjoy views of the countryside and are all perfect spots to sip a coffee or relax with guests.
The guest house provides additional living space and has its own kitchen, living area, bedrooms and a bathroom. Tucked away on the property is a hidden writer’s studio where you can escape your daily routine. The recently renovated barn is a versatile space where you can create a studio, or in-law apartment.
This convenient location allows you to take advantage of all the area’s natural beauty and amenities. Visit the renowned South County beaches along the shoreline that is only a short stroll or bike ride away, including South Kingstown State Beach and East Matunuck Beach. Enjoy seaside entertainment at the nearby Theatre By the Sea or delight in the acclaimed seaside restaurants in the area. The Block Island Ferry can carry you to multiple off-shore destinations for a quick relaxing trip. The accessible highway allows you to travel to either historic Newport or vibrant Providence with ease.
