Stunning Stone House
Stunning stone house nestled in a beautiful garden and woods and surrounded by 1000 acres of Open Space and wild life. Seclusion at its best. We own a small farm with a garden and animals. The property sits on an old granite quarry that operated from the late 19th century until about the 1920s. The stone house was originally built as a dormitory for the quarry workers. We have a beautiful field at the bottom of the hill with a large army tent in the summer and beds in the house in the winter for our volunteer's sleeping arrangements. There is a bonfire pit and the space is surrounded by the gardens and woods. It bumps up against a bike path that goes down to a near by lake and continues all the way to Providence (about a two hour bike ride). The extra rooms in the house itself are rented out. Biking distance to anything you may need, the nearby town is about five miles from the property.
For animals we have 3 dogs, a donkey, a dairy calf, about 15 laying hens and still looking to expand.
We have a full time fire wood operation and a renovation project up the street.
We own a sailboat, so there may be opportunity there as well, in the summer months.
Day trips to Boston, Cape Cod, New York City, Newport, and Providence.
We are carefree, fun, creative people who love to have a good time, eat good food, and love to take care of this beautiful property. We hope to make the most of its abundant resources from gardening, stone, animals, firewood, and carpentry and we could use all the help we could get.
