Built in 1840, the Luther Martin House in the desirable Rumstick neighborhood has been lovingly maintained and updated with careful attention to preserving its period details. One of the most intact Greek Revivals in Barrington, the home rests on a park-like lot full of mature plantings and perennials.
The interior of the home has a nice flow for both everyday living and hosting family and friends while the dining room boasts the original “first growth” pine floors. The relocated and updated kitchen features ample cabinet space, stainless steel appliances, natural cherry counters and a breakfast bar. There’s plenty of space for entertaining with two large family rooms — both with fireplaces.
The dining room and family room both offer access to two porches – perfect for outdoor dining. The second floor hosts four bedrooms including the master with a private ensuite bath.
Also on the property is a summer home and an additional storage shed.
Located less than a mile from Barrington Town Beach, this property is also just minutes from the East Bay Bike Path, Rhode Island Country Club, Bayside Family YMCA, and several nearby yacht clubs and marinas. Barrington boasts one of the top-ranked school systems in Rhode Island as well as a charming town center filled with locally owned shops and restaurants. In addition to everything this seaside town has to offer, this property is also just a 20 minute commute to all the business, entertainment, and nightlife of the Capital City.
