Nestled within Hope Valley’s Hopkinton Village at 2 Grancera Drive in Rhode Island on three-quarters of an acre of flat land is a Cape Cod-styled house and attached 2-car garage with stained clapboarding and shingles.

From its paver-stoned driveway and front pathway to its inviting pergola, patio, fire pit, fireplace and pizza oven in the backyard, this beautifully-landscaped home is welcoming and perfect for entertaining. Trees lining the back and both sides, along with perennial flowers that adorn the lot, also create an idyllic sanctuary. Wood fencing on the right side gives you additional privacy. Try your hand at gardening with raised beds on the right side of the property.

From the moment you step into the front foyer with a staircase on the far left and a coat closet straight ahead, this sun-filled home exudes Old World charm with wide wooden floor boards and raised paneling.

Enjoy a large dining area with a double doorway and full view of the kitchen, which features a faux-beamed ceiling, built-in bookshelves/cabinetry, and double windows that overlook the backyard. Black soapstone countertops and an apron sink are a stunning contrast to the cream-colored Shaker cabinets.

Step down several stairs into a huge family room with a vaulted ceiling, skylights, and tile flooring. Upper shiplapped walls and lower raised panels, as well as more built-in shelving and cabinetry, make this the room you will probably want to live in the most. A wood-burning fireplace at the far end certainly makes this the ideal spot to lounge in on chilly nights. Double sliding doors open to the patio. Another door leads to the 2-car garage.

A nearby hallway features a washer/dryer hookup tucked behind doors, a large closet, and a tiled full bath with a shower/tub and soapstone-topped vanity. The main level also offers a room that could be utilized as a den or office. Next to this space, is a master bedroom with a double closet and multiple windows. It’s the perfect set-up for someone who would rather not climb stairs.

The magic continues on the second level with gorgeous pine doors and durable laminate flooring, as well as eaves’ storage, large closets and built-in window seats and bureaus in 2 good-sized bedrooms. One of the bedrooms provides a built-in bed, drawers, and desk with overhead track lighting. Don’t need 3 bedrooms? Utilize one of the rooms as an art studio or craft room.

A full bath with a double-sink vanity and shower stall serves this level.

Craving some private time alone or with friends? Head to the basement where a finished recreational room features carpeting and paneled walls. Use this space for exercising, watching television, or playing billiards.
