This unique abode, home of the late US Senator John Chafee, sits on elevated grounds with sweeping views of acres of unspoiled rolling meadows, salt marshes and a meandering river rich in songbirds, waterfowl and field animals . As the house is located at the top of a slope, one enters an entrance hall on the upper floor, one goes up to a balcony, one looks out onto a double-height living room and one sees, through a huge Palladian window, a field and a stream beyond. The two-story window soaks up the morning sun in the great room and on the breakfast balcony. The south-facing windows catch the light on winter days and under the balcony nestles a more intimate space for cocktails by the fire on winter nights. A private study provides an indoor fireplace for those who enjoy a book or a television sitting near a blaze. To the south stretches a brick patio under a thick grape arbor for fresh al fresco lunches on hot summer days and front row seating for the wild chorus of birdsong at sunset. Rain or shine, one can also enjoy a morning coffee or an evening drink while browsing the meadows and the river from a covered outdoor balcony above. And three times a season, a local farmer can be seen aboard his tractor as he mows hay in the surrounding fields. The farm is a children’s paradise. A mansard-roofed barn topped by a charming dome contains a large hay loft for the forts or table tennis and four horse boxes below for the ponies of the young riders. The grounds were also home to happy geese, chickens and dogs.
