Welcome to the Esbon Sanford House, located on a quiet lane in North Kingstown. Recently featured in the New York Times, this charming home was built circa 1832 when Esbon Sanford Jr. established a factory to produce jean cloth as well as red and blue flannel. This five-bay gabled roof house, listed on the National Register of Historic Places has the charm and detailing of the Federal and Greek Revival styles, along with the conveniences of modern living. The well-proportioned rooms have high ceilings, wide-board floors, elegant moldings and authentic period detailing. The first floor offers a formal living room, dining room, large study with built-in bookcases, small office/bedroom, full bath, spacious kitchen/family with wood burning stove and a separate laundry room. The second floor has a substantial primary bedroom, two additional bedrooms and a full bath. A charming mahogany porch with beautiful detailing sits off the kitchen and overlooks the picturesque grounds, complete with stone walls and beautiful plantings. Two large outbuildings (each 600-700 sf) currently serving as a shed and a workshop have many potential uses, perhaps as an accessory dwelling or artist's studio. Just a five minute drive to Wickford, convenient to shopping and train, and easy access to the water, this meticulously maintained home has much to offer. Newer roof, good mechanicals, and brand new septic! Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to own a piece of history!
