Home is meant to be a place to grow old with, the place where you share the joy of your children and eventually your children’s children. Home is where memories are made and then relived year after year. Having a home that is built to grow with you is rare, but the beautiful and spacious Cape Cod home at 46 King Tom Drive in Charlestown does just that.
Located in a quiet neighborhood south of Route 1 in Charlestown, 46 King Tom Drive enjoys all of the features that make the town one of Rhode Island’s best kept secrets. Wooded surroundings maintain the country feel of this quiet, village-like nook, but a mere few-minutes’ drive away is some of the greatest coastline the Ocean State has to offer. One of the key amenities of living on King Tom Drive are the association rights that come with the property, providing exclusive boat slips on Niningret Pond right at the end of the street.
Built in 2000, this spacious almost new three bedroom home offer lots of room to spread out. A gracious, covered front porch looks out over the wide, well-manicured front yard. Entering into the home, an inviting living room is warmed by a gas fireplace with a pristine wooden mantle. While the fireplace offers a great place to curl up on cooler nights, central air conditioning and ceiling fans throughout the room keep the house cool during the warmer months.
A spacious open country kitchen with a central island offers an abundance of space for cooking meals of any size. This is a kitchen customized for someone who loves to cook, or lives to share their home with friends and family. Aside from the oven, an additional wall-oven creates room for creative cooking. Loads of cabinet space fills the room with an additional pantry at its rear. Wood floors flow from the kitchen into the homes dining room which looks out over the peaceful backyard.
Sliding doors lead from the dining room into the homes beautifully inviting four-season room. With a vaulted ceiling and skylights over tiled floors, this heated room is surrounded by windows making it the most peaceful spot in the house. The back deck beside the room extends down to an outdoor shower; an essential feature for a home so close to the beach. A wide, stamped concrete patio sits between the deck and the homes spacious, tree-lined backyard. An oversized, detached two car garage offers additional storage space as well as a generator hooked into the homes power.
Back inside, a first floor laundry and mudroom are conveniently set between the deck and dining area. While there are bedrooms on the second floor, 45 King Tom Drive is built for first floor-living. As well as the spacious master bedroom is located on the first floor. With its own full bathroom with a walk-in shower and toiletry closet, the bedroom is customized for ease of living. A separate linen closet sits across from a deep walk-in closet in the room. There is also an additional half bathroom on the homes first floor.
Upstairs, two more spacious rooms offer great bedrooms for children or even grandchildren. This is where 45 King Tom Drive leaves room for growth. An ideal home in which to start a family, it’s also a versatile home that can adapt as that family grows. Each of the two upstairs bedrooms is wonderfully sized with two wide closets in each. An additional room opens up behind pocket doors easily handling a sleep sofa, creating the ideal space for a home office of second floor sitting room.
