Great contemporary on 5-plus acres on Smithfield/Lincoln line

185 Harris Road, Smithfield

SMITHFIELD - Just a stone's throw over the Lincoln line is this contemporary gem hidden away on 5.5 acres of park-like grounds.

Three sets of square stone columns line the long, winding driveway that's shaded by tall trees. The expansive front and side lawns are as pretty as a park. A brook runs along one side of the property.

This is a one-owner home built in 1982, designed with family living in mind. The focus point is the sunken living room with its floor-to-ceiling fieldstone fireplace and towering windows on each side. There's a wooden, beamed ceiling, and open staircase that goes up to a 30-by-25-foot loft room, perfect for a game room or family room.

A center hallway goes from the large entry foyer back to the kitchen area; off this hall is a home office. To the right of the foyer is a formal dining room built with large gatherings in mind. There's an oversized bow window to let in plenty of light.

Just behind the dining room is an oval-shaped kitchen with cherry cabinets and granite counters, tile floor, and smooth-top range. Over the sink is a triple window that expands overhead to let in extra light. Behind the kitchen is an informal dining area, and off that, a large, heated sunroom with cathedral ceiling and a woodstove.

Also off the dining area, a side hall goes toward a walk-in pantry, half bath, laundry room, and back door and basement stairs.

The left side of the house is the bedroom wing. The hallway bathroom, shared by three bedrooms, has a deep soaking tub, double sink vanity and walk-in shower.

The master suite includes a closet-lined hallway that leads to the bathroom.

The basement has a finished exercise room, utility room, and door to the oversized two-car garage.

Heat is by oil, in six zones, and air-conditioning is in three zones. The boiler is a high-efficiency model.

The house offers 4,138 square feet of living space, in 11 rooms, with four bedrooms and 2.5 baths. It's offered at $579,000 by Carol LaMontagne of LaMontagne Real Estate. Reach her at 401-465-8201.

An open house is scheduled for Sunday, Aug. 10, from 1 ro 3 p.m.
