Ralph Waldo Emerson once noted that “the ornament of a house is the friends who frequent it.” Home is about sharing and creating memories and it’s important to have a home built to intersect openness with efficiency and elegance.
The stunning bungalow style home at 163 Diamond Hill Road in Ashaway is impeccably designed for easy living and relaxation. The non-traditional and open layout of the home offers plenty of unique space to enjoy the company of family and friends, who, like Emerson said, are the most important detail of all.
New England style stone walls flow across the beautifully landscaped front yard of 163 Diamond Hill Road. A quaint covered porch provides an inviting first impression.
The original house was built in 1960; however the entire house was renovated inside and out in 2006. The new life and fresh perspective of the home is apparent from the moment you walk in the door. Entering to high-vaulted ceilings and wood floors throughout, the homes open floor plan extends from front to back, seamlessly flowing from room to room. The homes living room invites with a towering ceiling and an arched brick, wood–burning fireplace.
A fitting, central hub of the home, the finely appointed kitchen has ceramic tiled floors and rich granite countertops that extend to an eat-in counter. Abundant counter space is matched by pristine, custom maple cabinets that offer lots of additional storage. A cathedral ceiling rises over the room with recessed lighting throughout. Top-of –the-line Maytag, stainless steel appliances add further elegance and a chef-quality experience to the space.
Adjacent to the kitchen is a nicely sized dining area with lots of natural light reflecting off of its cathedral ceiling. Left of the dining area, a peaceful screened-in front porch provides a relaxing space to read a book, enjoy some quiet or share a cup of coffee with friends. Right of the dining area is a larger all-season room surrounded by wrap-around windows looking out over the homes stunning backyard.
A wide treks deck with a separate awning extends off of the all-season room to a separate entrance into the kitchen. The deck rises over the homes incredible yard. The private, fenced-in backyard extends to woods along the rear of the property. Beautiful landscaping and a manicured lawn are only the beginning. A covered, concrete pavilion at the center of the yard is wired for electricity, offering yet another spot to create memories with friends and family. Also on the property is a small shed and separate two-car garage with an outdoor shower.
Back inside, two of the homes three first floor bedrooms share a full bathroom with ceramic tile, a washer and dryer and tub/shower combination. The bedrooms each have nice-sized closets and shuttered windows indicative of a coastal New England cottage. The master bedroom is extra-large with a wide closet and its own private bathroom with walk-in shower.
On the second floor of the home, a wonderfully designed room with wood-floors and nice natural light is the perfect and peaceful setting for a home office or study. Downstairs, a full basement has potential to be finished into a play room or den. Both central air conditioning and central vacuum add even more convenience.
A unique and innovative layout with beautiful features and stunning privacy are just a few of the features that make 163 Diamond Hill Road a must see property. The quiet, close to everything, wooded setting of Ashaway is another feature that makes the home irresistible.
