Located at the end of a peaceful lane The Barn is one of the more private and extraordinary homes on the island. Originally located on a farm in Bluffton, Indiana the 4500 ft structure was transported to the beach community of Middletown, RI in 2003. The post and beam home features the original 140 year old hard wood beams that create a living environment unlike any other. With soaring ceilings in the great room and 58 windows the home is both light filled and airy. The main living area features a 30 ft fireplace with an open design over radiant heated cherry floors and is connected to the kitchen and dining areas. Craftsmanship and attention to detail are evident throughout the house, the master bedroom and bath offer distant ocean views and were designed as a separate oasis while the first level with 2 bedrooms and a full bath, a stone fireplace and additional family room provide a quiet get away. In all the home offers 4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, 4 fireplaces and 2 living areas with updated utilities and is sited on an acre of land within 5 minutes to downtown Newport or the beaches.
Middletown is aptly named for its location between Portsmouth and Newport. It’s located on Aquidneck Island, and is bounded by three bodies of water, Narragansett Bay on the west, the Sakonnet River on the east, and Rhode Island Sound to the south.
