Nayatt Point, Estate of the Day
Today's home was built in 1913 and commands an enviable view Narragansett Bay. Located in the Nayatt Point area of Barrington, Rhode Island, today's home has the gorgeous lines of another era. The entrance to the 3.64-acre estate is highlighted by antique cast iron gates with a circular drive leading to a porte-cochere entry. A simply graceful foyer includes a grand staircase with triple twisted balusters and paneled risers. All the old-fashioned details are in place including hand carved fireplaces, stained glass, built-in china cabinets and six paneled pocket doors. The breakfast loggia offers a sunny place to take your coffee with windows opening out onto bay views. Marble pillars frame the expansive brick terrace that lead to the sloping lawn and private beach. There are eight bedrooms and all principal bedrooms boast water views. The second floor master suite has his and hers baths/dressing rooms with stunning water views. The expansive slate roof was replaced in 2006. This home is listed at $6.295 million.
