Location: South Kingstown, Rhode Island
The stately 1908-built “Belle Terre” in South Kingstown, Rhode Island, sits on over 10 acres of land that was once part of a 100-acre heritage farm. Featuring a shingled facade and green shutters, the two-story Colonial revival comprises 5,125 square feet of charming, traditional architecture recently updated for contemporary living.
A barrel vaulted ceiling marks the entry foyer, where a grand staircase and chandelier set the stage for the rest of the five-bedroom home. An expansive great room with beamed ceilings and brick fireplace, formal dining room, and extraordinary sun porch makes up the first floor, where a study, gourmet kitchen with butler’s pantry, and a smaller sitting room are also found. Upstairs, a master suite with a fireplace, sunporch and sitting area resides, along with the other private quarters.
Directly behind the sunporch is a patio enclosed with stone walls that looks onto the gorgeous tree-planted grounds. A koi pond, horse stables, and a 60-foot pergola round out the property. Located at 600 Main Street, the home is offered at $1.795 million.
