We are truly pleased to offer the Historic Captain Philip Cory House for guests visiting the Tiverton and Little Compton area. We feel the Captain Philip Cory House nicely compliments our other VRBO properties, The Old Tiverton Four Corners Schoolhouse No.1. located a few doors down along with Potters Corner in neighboring Little Compton. The Captain Philip Cory House is located in the Historic Tiverton Four Corners Area. We provide complimentary Sakonnet Farm Fresh Eggs (seasonally) and Keriug Coffee during your stay.
The Captain Philip Cory House (circa 1770) is a 2 ½ -story, wood clapboard, Federal-inspired, post-and- beam timber frame structure, set gable end to the road, with a 3-bay facade, having three large, brick, interior chimneys (6 fireplaces and an original kitchen bake oven). The house employs the classical details of the Federal and Greek Revival styles, a historic architectural evolution reflected throughout this house.
The Captain Philip Cory House has three upstairs bedrooms. Two with full sized beds, one with twin bunk beds. The three bedrooms are situated around a central living room with an LED TV. There is a fourth bedroom/sitting room down stairs with two twin beds. There are two full bathrooms upstairs. The central bathroom has a marble shower and a Jacuzzi tub and the master bathroom is brand new with a tiled shower. There is a half bath downstairs. WI-FI is provided free of charge for those of you who like to stay in touch while you are on vacation.
The grounds are stunning and impeccably maintained featuring a parterre box garden and a serpentine perennial garden behind 18th century dry-laid fieldstone walls. Large London Plane trees are prominent landscape features, and some may be original to the date of construction of the house. There is a fire pit area in the yard and we have kiln dried firewood for sale at Sakonnet Farm if you should like to enjoy some outside evening time.
After you are done strolling the grounds, amble a short five minute walk north to visit the heart of Historic Tiverton Four Corners, a quaint three-hundred year old cross-roads village. There you will find unique shops, restaurants, Gray’s Ice Cream shop, an Arts Center, Art Galleries, and many other establishments. If you plan on cooking, be sure to visit one of the nearby roadside stands for some tender, sweet, fresh-picked corn.
If you find the The Captain Philip Cory house already booked for the dates you wish please check out our two other vacation rentals located here on VRBO. The Old Tiverton Four Corners Schoolhouse No.1 is located just a few doors down and Potters Corner is located in neighboring Little Compton. Potters Corner is a brand new 3000s.f. Colonial with high end appointments. All Sakonnet Farm properties are maintained with the same high level attention to detail.
