Set back from the road, on over two acres of manicured grounds, sits this elegant 1911 shingle-style country estate. Rising off it’s granite foundation and decorated with Gothic-style and Queen Anne embellishments, the house suggests both distinction and leisure of estate living. Built as a wedding gift for the daughter of tennis racquet magnate Royden Kent beside his own mansion that was demolished in the 1960s, this is one of the most architecturally significant houses in Seekonk, Massachusetts.
Sit back and relax on the beautiful front porch while overlooking the large front yard and enjoying all that nature has to offer.
Inside, the entry foyer with a coffered ceiling adjoins the well detailed living room with an imposing fireplace that creates a rich atmosphere in which to gather guests. Relax in the sunroom located off the living room or head into the private office with built-ins and it’s own fireplace. The spacious dining room begs to be used for all occasions with its oversized windows casting natural light over the table setting, built-in china cabinet, and charming fireplace. Prepare meals in the chef’s kitchen with stainless steel appliances including a Viking refrigerator, gourmet stove, and a wine cooler.
Glass door sliders lead out to a brick patio where you and guests can sit out on the brick patio staring out at the mature plantings in the exceptional yard.
