NORTH SMITHFIELD – Situated on a corner lot, this colonial, which was built in 1986, is positioned to maximize the amount of sun exposure in the house.

There has only been one owner, who added custom details when the house was constructed by Bill LaDuke, a builder from Scituate.

“It’s very unique,” Gregory Varatta, the listing agent, said. “The kitchen is original. But with the shape of everything you would think no one even lived there, with the upkeep.”

The driveway leads to a two-car garage. There are brick walkways around the house, one from the garage area going to the backyard, while the other is off the driveway leading to the front entrance.

Most of the exterior is cedar clapboard siding, with an accent of brick. Another unique feature of this house is a “broken pediment,” at the front entrance, an Armand Lamontagne architectural design. A broken pediment is defined as a pediment frequent in the Baroque style having a gap at the apex.

This property sits on 1.53 acres and has a lot of privacy as the backyard abuts the trees. The backyard is flat and spacious.

Varatta highlighted the uniqueness of the rooms in the house. To the right of the front entrance is the family room, which is carpeted. It holds one of the three custom-built fireplace mantles. There are two working fireplaces and one wood-burning stove.

To the left of the entrance, there is a closet and beyond that is the formal dining room. This room leads to two other rooms, the kitchen and the great room. The great room has cathedral ceilings, skylights, hardwood floors, the wood-buring stove, and a sliding glass door to the backyard.

The kitchen has custom oak cabinets, plate/chair rails, crown molding and built-in window seats. It is a spacious area, with a center island as well as room for a table near the window seat.

Also on the first floor is a half bath and office.

There are three sizable bedrooms on the second floor. The master suite is carpeted, has its own full bath, and features a fireplace.

There is also more space in the attic. “It’s an enormous attic,” Varatta said. “It has more room than most houses. You can stand up in it and do cartwheels. There is also a basement, not finished, but huge and great for more storage.”

The home has four zones for heating, as well as a six-zone sprinkler system for the lawn.

There are eight rooms in the house and a total of 3,084 square feet of living space. This property is being offered at $534,900. For a showing, call Varatta at 401-300-1114. An open house will be held Sunday, Feb. 16, 1-3 p.m.
