                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: Born in Providence, growing up in Warwick I am a native Rhode Islander. After graduating from the University of Rhode Island, South Kingstown became my home. I am a professional in the community and a mother of four grown boys. A world traveler, art collector, and entrepreneur, I still call this small New England seaside town my home. Welcome!

                  Why the Owner Chose Wakefield:
                  Bittersweet Farm is the quintessential elegant south county shingle style home. Located close to Narragansett Bay where swimming, surfing, and sailing are available at Narragansett Beach (7.2 miles), East Matunuck State Beach (6 miles), South Kingstown Town Beach (7.7 miles), and Scarbough State Beach (7.9 miles). The town dock 5-miles away allows boating, water skiing, and wake boarding on Salt Pond or a 30-minute cruise to Block Island. Horse stables, tennis, or golf near by. A short drive to Jamestown, Newport, Wickford, and Watch Hill. A 40 minute drive to Providence for Waterfire, RISD Museum, Brown University, and the best RI dining. While in town feast on local seafood, stroll through the local farmer's markets where the abundance of farm to table organic fruits and vegetables and grass fed meats are abundent. Need fresh eggs, there just around the corner! Ride the bike path (2.8 miles), enjoy homemade ice-cream at Brickley's (2.8 miles), read a good book, fill a vase with flowers, or just relax in peace and quiet! Bittersweet Farm is an excellent location for visiting New England Colleges or for a family retreat during college graduations. Brown, RISD, URI, Naval War College, and Salve Regina weekends available.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Bittersweet Farm was built in 1998 inspired by world renowned Architect Robert A.M. Stern's Life Magazine's 1994 Dream House. Stern's Dream House is supported with graceful proportions, fine materials, and eye pleasing details of a kind seldom found in middle-class housing built after World War II. Stern's nostalgic creation has been adapted to fit perfectly on this rustic yet elegant distinctive 5.6 acre estate located less than 2-miles from the historic town of Wakefield and 5 miles from the historic town of Narragansett. Located 1-mile in on a private road, Bittersweet Farm uniquely provides classic elegance, family warmth, ultimate privacy and unsurpassed tranquility.
