About Deborah

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!

Deborah also manages HomeAway/VRBO rental # 3732456. Anawon Cliffs is an exclusive oceanfront estate with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and private deeded water rights. Situated in the multi-million dollar neighborhood of Anawon Cliffs this home is 2-miles from Narragansett Town Beach.

Deborah purchased this house in 1998

Why Deborah chose Rhode Island

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This home was absolutely stunning and incredible. Tucked away and private but still very quickly accessible to groceries, restaurants, etc. Deborah, the owner, provides her home with open arms, willing to accommodate any reasonable need you may have. The home is perfectly laid out for multiple guests and was perfect for our family. With the owner’s approval, we held a wedding rehearsal dinner at the house and the accommodations were spectacular. The back porch overlooking the vast yard is simply amazing and a great place to drink your morning coffee or entertain family members. We can’t wait to come back.

Weekend Getaway with Friends

  • 5 of 5

My group of friends had an absolutely amazing weekend getaway at Bittersweet Farm. The house was immaculate, the pictures do not even do the house justice. The house was very spacious, clean, and elegant. Due to inclement weather we stayed at the house for the majority of our stay and no one was upset about it. We were able to sit out on the large covered patio, play cards at the breakfast nook, and watch football in the warm and cozy living room. The grocery store, restaurants, and liquor store were a very short drive into Wakefield which made the house in a very convenient location. It is a secluded house that feels like it is way off the beaten path but less than 2 miles from all of the necessities. Even though Deborah was not present when we arrived she was very responsive leading up to our stay and very accommodating. She provides a very detailed note outlining all the accommodations and need-to-know information which was very helpful. Next trip to Rhode Island with a larger group this house will be on the top of our list.

Family Stay for RI Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Deborah's Bitter Sweet Farm house was perfect for our family's stay for our first wedding of our 4 children. The house is more than spacious and very homey. We held a rehearsal dinner for 30 people and the house more than accommodated our guests. Deborah was always very responsive to emails/texts and was on-hand upon our arrival to show us around her home.

Too bad we couldn't take advantage of nearby beaches, etc. due to the time of the year and inclement weather. But it was wedding central and was perfect. Thank you!

Great Home in a Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in Deborah's home. The house was spacious and beautifully decorated. Deborah gave us a tour as soon as we arrived so that we would know where everything was located. We couldn't have asked for a better home for our trip.

Fall Family Gathering at Bittersweet Farn

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely spot for our family gathering. It was indeed clean and well maintained. The homeowner was responsive to my questions. My only complaint is that a cat lives there when the homeowner is there. My two sisters are very allergic to cats and suffered over the weekend because of that.

Owner's Response: It's important to have beautiful surroundings and Bittersweet Farm offers that inside and out. Privacy, close proximity to town and beaches, and beautiful artwork provide for a relaxing and fun get-away. Besides enjoying morning coffee on the porch, a glass of wine or a cup of tea in the afternoon is a delightful way to enjoy the westward sun!

Owner's Response: Bittersweet Farm is 5.6 acres of privacy close to town...it gives you that estate feeling. In addition to their size the bedrooms offer comfortable mattresses and cotton linens. Being professional and accommodating the needs of my guests is my goal.
