New to the market
Three new properties hit the Barrington real estate market in the past week:
291 Sowams Road is located on the corner of Sowams and Columbus Avenue. This convenient location is within walking distance to Hampden Meadows School, Sowams School, tennis courts on Kent Street, and some beautiful walking trails in the New Meadow Neck forest.
The home itself is a smaller cape with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom spread across 1,344 square feet of living space. The interior of the home has a refreshed white kitchen and nice hardwood floors but the bathrooms could use an update. There is a wood deck that overlooks the backyard, which is shaded with mature oak trees. At an asking price of $359,000 / $267 per square foot, this property is worth a close look.
5 Brook Street is located in the west side of town on the corner of Homestead Avenue. This is an awesome location! You are just steps from Haines Park, which offers athletic fields, wooded walking trails, a nice boat ramp for access to the water, and a great dog park. You are also close to the East Bay Bike Path, which can bring you to Providence or Barrington town center rather quickly. Additionally, there is Cove Haven Marina also just a short walk away, offering deep water dockage and quick access for boaters to get to Narragansett Bay.
The home itself is adorable! Loaded with charm and character, there is endless potential here. The house is well-maintained, but could use some cosmetic updates. The layout features a first floor bedroom and a full bathroom, which offer complete single level living. There are also two bedrooms upstairs, along with a half bath. At 1,350 square feet, there is plenty of room but it still retains that classic cape coziness. The asking price is $349,900 / $259 per square foot, which makes this one of the most affordable homes in Barrington. Don’t wait too long, this will make the perfect holiday home for someone very soon!
81 Maple Avenue now holds the often short-lived title of most affordably priced home available in town. With an asking price of $299,000 / $309 per square foot, the property offers a wide range of opportunities. Located in the heart of the Barrington business district, the property is currently configured as a single family home, but could be converted to an office or business use. There is just 966 square feet of living space on the first floor, but there is also additional finished space on the basement level. The lot is 7,841 square feet and has frontage on both Maple Avenue and Hamilton Avenue. Whether it’s home sweet home or a new business to join the other successful small businesses on Maple Avenue, this is an opportunity worth taking a closer look at.
There are also several interesting properties that will hit the market soon in Barrington. Please contact our office for further details or to schedule a showing and ensure that you’re among the very first buyers in for a tour.
