The Property

Are you hoping for a cozy country get-away, maybe even a starter nest? Savor this well-maintained, modernized, yet truly historic home (built 1824, later expanded). The house has two floors, two bedrooms and features a kitchen where an original brick chimney defines the dining area. The spacious living room warmly gathers around a new fireplace. Stay toasty all winter just burning wood! There’s even a solid, post-and-beam potting shed out the back door.

But … THAT’S NOT ALL. With “your old house,” comes a newly-built 2,400 sq. ft., two-story studio-and-garage equipped with running water and composting toilet. The house was repainted in 2021. The upgraded electric is a hefty 200 amps. The heating system is recent (2008). There’s a new well (2014) and a new roof on both house and shed (2015). Your secluded 4.6-acre parcel of woodland runs along one side of an old dirt road. The other side is state-owned land which can’t be developed. A canoe-friendly stocked trout pond is a few steps from your front door. A new mason-built stone wall frames your driveway. Foster’s been called “the Vermont of Rhode Island.” Yet it has quick access to major highways and the cultural treats of rural CT, Boston, western MA, and northern New England. The main house has just one bath now. But here’s the good news: you can easily expand to a second bath. Septic system to be installed by closing.
