Living on Adams Point in Barrington, Rhode Island is all about the outdoors, the water, and the views. On the western side of the road dividing the peninsula, each property looks out to Smith’s Cove and gets an evening sunset that most likely is postcard perfect. This Contemporary home was designed by architect Rem Huygens and features large glass walls which allow for the light to pour in and for a chance to spy out onto the cove.
The showcase of the property is the cathedral ceiling living room with its large fireplace, built in cabinets and double glass slider leading to the tile patio – creating the atmosphere often found in tropical paradises. The two areas blend seamlessly, with only the winter months defining the separation. From there you can easily move into the formal dining room or a cozy office or den area.
The kitchen offers clean contemporary lines and is accented by a built in bench dining area with glass on three sides. It’s as though you are having morning breakfast with the birds and nature.
There are three en-suites, very spacious bedrooms with two on the second floor separated by an open hallway which overlooks the living room. The master is located on the first floor with an impressive view of Smith’s cove through its own glass slider.
In the finished lower level the home features a home gym to stay in shape and a recreation room to unwind with a few competitive games against friends or family.
Barrington is home to those with discriminating tastes, a perennially high rated school system, access to a bike path which winds for 13 scenic miles along the coast of the bay, and many other recreational facilities. It is an easy commute to downtown Providence and a clearly sought after community. Adams Point is one of those neighborhoods that define the charm of the town.
