Several properties hit the East Bay market this week. From fixer-upper opportunities to waterfront condos, there is quite the variety available.
261 Narragansett Avenue is a nice opportunity for someone that has the appetite for a project. Located in the seaside Bay Spring neighborhood in West Barrington, there is a lot to like about the spot. You are just steps from beautiful western and southern facing water views, Latham Park – a small waterfront park with room to picnic, play, fish, or launch a kayak – and the Safe Harbor Cove Haven Marina, which offers deep water dockage and a full service marina.
The house itself is just 800 square feet of living space and the structure itself is in total disrepair. However, the lot is a generous size for this neighborhood and, with the right research and planning, a thoughtfully designed new home could be built upon the lot. There are some factors that affect one’s ability to build upon the lot, some of which are zoning and flood elevation related, so be sure to talk with an experienced agent at Chart House before making any purchase decision based upon your ability to rebuild.
10 Brook Street is located just outside of Haines Park. This neat mid-century modern ranch design offers good living space for its relatively modest size of just 1,200 square feet. The home is well cared for but cosmetically updated, so if you’re up for light remodeling, painting, and a bit of decorating, this offers a nice opportunity to live in Barrington at an entry level price point.
2 Alfred Drive is a classic Nayatt colonial with a nice addition to the original layout that created a wonderful master suite. Well cared for and updated over the years, the house offers a buyer some ability to make a few cosmetic upgrades if they wish, but not the requirement to do anything. Walking distance to Barrington Beach, Nayatt School, and Brickyard Pond, the location is premium.
249 Hope Street in Bristol is a spectacular location! Directly on the water, looking south and west you’ll never get tired of taking in these views. The offering is a condo unit, but it is completely detached from the other condo buildings. Enjoy the sense of single family living but without worrying about maintaining the landscaping and exterior. The home is well updated with a light and bright color palette. The location provides easy walking access to downtown Bristol and all the shops, restaurants and entertainment that have made the town of Bristol so famous.
1 Karen Lane is located in the desirable West Side neighborhood, Ferncliffe Farms. An attractive young cape built in 1983 and owned by the same family since it was constructed, you’ll benefit from the TLC the owner has given this property and the consistent upgrades that have been made over the years. Enjoy amazing backyard entertaining and relaxation with the beautiful stone patio, outdoor fireplace and in-ground swimming pool. A very convenient location nestled between downtown Warren and downtown Bristol, you’ll never have to go very far to enjoy amazing restaurants, like Aidan’s Pub in Bristol or Revival in Warren.
1237 Hope Street is a charming 18th century antique farmhouse that has been enlarged, restored and updated over the hundreds of years that it has stood proudly. Located on almost an acre of land, just steps from the Rockwell School and a short walk to the East Bay Bike Path and a great little swimming beach, there is plenty of room to enjoy the outdoors. But, you’ll want to spend some time indoors too and enjoy the many upgrades that were just recently made in over the past year. Upgrades include two remodeled bathrooms, and a spacious and sunny new kitchen with beautiful flooring and gorgeous marble counters. And, the owners did more than just the cosmetic upgrades; they also installed a new heating system and a new 200 amp electrical service. Truly a special combination of classic old charm and new modern upgrades.
7 Middleton Road is a charming cape in the spectacular Bristol Highlands. Recent updates include a renovated kitchen and master bath, but the home retains its character with original pine floors and other beautiful accents. The home has three bedrooms and one and a half baths, with a large yard and attached garage. Enjoy the use of tennis courts, a community clubhouse, and private beach and water access as part of the neighborhood association.
18 Laurel Lane in Warren is an adorable one level bungalow located in Laurel Park, which has a great neighborhood association with access to a little beach on the Kickemuit River as well as a neighborhood playground. The home features three bedrooms and updated bathroom, gleaming hardwood floors and a gas fireplace. The roof is young and the lot is spacious. Come see what has made Laurel Park such an attractive neighborhood for generations now.
0 Patterson Avenue is a nice 12,371 square foot lot located on a dead end street that leads you to the Kickemuit River. The lot is elevated and provides Eastern facing views of the scenic river. There is natural gas, electric and sewer all available in the street, the lot will have water service from a well to be drilled on-site. Owned by a builder, you can choose a custom build package with the seller or bring your own builder and just buy the land. A great spot and a nice opportunity to build a new house in a well established neighborhood.
