The Property

CALLING ALL HISTORIC PRESERVATIONISTS!! Come see this magnificent 1710 historic gem in Greenville, a charming village within Smithfield and in the heart of RI’s “Apple Country”. A National Register property, the Waterman-Winsor House has been meticulously restored over the past 45 years by the current owners under the guidance of one of RI’s foremost restoration architects. With beautiful barns, it was once home to a 100+ acre apple farm, and the house itself consists of two 18th century houses joined together in the late 1700s. With this enlarged floor plan of 10 rooms plus an addition of a sunroom/greenhouse, there are 8 working fireplaces, 3 with beehive bake ovens! Historic details remain and include gorgeous fireplace mantels, wide board pine floors, beveled gunstock posts/beams, early hardware and doors, and 12-over-12 windows (w/added storms).

The property has city water and sewer, one artesian well, and underground electric and natural gas (cooking) lines. The full height basement is even beautiful, with an oil boiler (10 years) with 8 zones to efficiently control baseboard heat throughout the house. The barns provide garage spaces, general storage, and room on two levels for artists’ studio spaces. The former Cider Mill on the property has a heated workshop/office. There is a winter pond for ice skating, 3 apple trees from the old “Apple King” days, and massive sugar maple trees lining the street and waiting for you to tap to make your very own syrup!!
