The Property

Built in 1775 by William Brown, this charming saltbox Colonial is designated by Barrington Preservation Society plaque as the Deacon Kent Brown home. Kent Brown, who was a shoemaker and Deacon of the Barrington Congregational Church, purchased the home in 1790 from his father, William. Sited on a one-acre lot, the craftsmanship of this multi-generational homestead showcases its history: beamed ceilings, wide-plank floors, custom built-ins and mantlepieces. The 1800 s.f.

of living space includes two bedrooms plus bonus room, one full bath, and one ¾ bath (this one has only a tub but no shower; it could easily be converted into a shower). The roof and windows were replaced in 2010, and a new gas heating system was installed in 2015. The detached two-car garage has heated loft space above, perfect for home office or gym and current zoning presents the possibility to build another residence on the lot. Being located across from Hundred Acre Cove there is easy access to kayaking or canoeing and is in close proximity to the schools, shops and restaurants of Barrington, yet just a short commute to Providence, this historic home is perfectly positioned to welcome its next steward.
