Home with in-law apartment near river offers endless possibilities

Looking for a stately home with a 2-bedroom in-law apartment? Come see this spacious 4-bedroom colonial with two front columns at 9 Fawn Drive in the Wood River Junction section of Richmond.

Depending on your specific needs, you’ll find this home’s unique layout adapts easily.

You’ll also enjoy living near the water in a quiet, established neighborhood with tall pine trees. Just down the road is Wood River where you can park your car and go kayaking. You’re also less than 15 minutes from fresh-and-saltwater ponds, ocean beaches, and Interstate-95. Enjoy fishing, boating, and wonderful walks on pristine Rhode Island beaches.

Set back from the road on almost one acre of land with beautifully-lit landscaping and clad with white vinyl siding, black shutters, a yellow door and a shiny black front porch, this 1995 custom-built home is a total charmer. The 2-bedroom in-law apartment was added in 2001.

Created as an integral part of this 4,034-square-foot house, the 3-car garage provides built-in workbenches, cabinetry, storage areas, and ceiling fans. There is even a large sound speaker, so you can rock out while tinkering with your car or workbench project.

On the right side of the house is a huge flat yard with a white arbor – the perfect setting for a wedding or other celebration. A paved path on the left side of the grounds leads to the back patio and deck with a fire pit, gas grill, and weatherproofed television. Nearby, is an electrically-powered, 16-by-20-foot shed for woodworking tasks and storing lawn equipment.

Adjacent to the paved driveway, is a gravel area to park 2 additional vehicles. Including the garage, there is space for 11 cars.

Enter the front door and be amazed by all the special touches. Hang your coat in a double closet straight ahead. Turn right into an inviting light-and-airy living room with a gas fireplace. Its white façade and dentil molding add elegance. Overhead, a mirror reflects more light. A front portion of the room features a palladium window and an arched ceiling.

Continue on into a formal dining area with subdued, overhead lighting. From this open area, you can see the backyard and entire eat-in kitchen with a breakfast bar and table.

High-end, dark laminate with wide boards, which look brand new, flow throughout the first floor and contrast beautifully against soft wall colors and the kitchen’s light wood cabinetry. Stainless-steel Frigidaire refrigerator, flat-top stove, and dishwasher keep meal preparation easy. The sliding-glass doors lead to the lovely rear deck with composite-decking and vinyl railings, as well as a large patio. What a wonderful layout to enjoy your private backyard and entertain family and friends.

From the kitchen, step down into a large mudroom with a long closet. Tucked behind doors on the opposite wall, is a washer and dryer. Another door leads to the 3-car garage.

A hallway off the kitchen provides a charming half-bath with aquamarine-colored walls and white wainscoting. Carpeted stairs by the front entrance lead to the second-floor landing with beautiful oak flooring. A large, full bath with laminate tile flooring, serves guests in the 3 good-sized bedrooms.

The 38-by-32-foot master bedroom suite over the garage is amazing! The half that features a palladium window, arched ceiling, and carpeting, offers space for a king-sized bed, couch, chair and desk. The other half of this master suite provides a large sitting area. There is also plenty of room to store all your clothes in a huge walk-in closet. A door at the opposite end of the closet leads to a room that could be utilized as an office, art studio, or sewing room.

Enjoy relaxing in this master suite’s spa bathroom, which offers a Jacuzzi and shower.

Discover a completely separate living area, which would be perfect for an in-law, returning adult child, or guests. Access the 2-bedroom apartment from the garage and rear deck. Dark green Berber carpeting flows throughout the large living room and 2 bedrooms. Built in 2001, this extraordinary apartment also features 2 hall closets and a huge, eat-in kitchen with gray tile laminate flooring and modern white cabinets and appliances – including a large side-by-side Whirlpool refrigerator/freezer. The apartment’s large bathroom with green tile flooring provides a shower/tub and sink vanity, as well as a storage closet and washer/dryer tucked behind floor-to-ceiling glass doors.

For an additional living area, you could easily finish off the basement, which you can access from the kitchen or the rear bulkhead. The utility room contains two 275-gallon oil tanks and a 4-zone Buderus furnace, as well as a water-filtration system for the well. Built-in shelving also makes it easy to store items. Additionally, this 4,034-square-foot colonial home offers 200-amp electrical service, central air-conditioning, forced hot air, and is already electrically-wired for a generator.

Besides its spaciousness, this custom-designed house has so much to offer, including a separate apartment and a huge master bedroom suite at the far of the second floor. Luxurious bathrooms, gorgeous flooring, recessed lighting and ceiling fans throughout, add those finishing touches that make this home very special. Enjoy cooking and entertaining inside and watching a game or movie on the rear deck and patio. Play Frisbee or kick the ball around in your huge side yard. Commune with nature. Take a canoe or kayak to Wood River down the road, or hop in your car and go fishing in nearby fresh-and-saltwater ponds. Drive 15 minutes and be at the ocean.

Best of all, with a separate 2-bedroom apartment you’ll always be prepared for any occasion.
