This ideal family home is back on the market after taking a winter break! It rests on over two acres at 7 Clarence Thurber Drive in Smithfield, Rhode Island.
Smithfield is strategically located within a 50 minute drive of Boston and less than one hour from Rhode Island’s finest beaches. Smithfield is also located 15 minutes from Providence and its fine restaurants, shopping, renovated waterfront and cultural activities. The town is only about 26 square miles, but it houses many lifestyles and industrial communities within, and is experiencing continued growth. Fidelity Investments, the nation’s largest mutual fund company has located one of two New England regional centers in Smithfield. Smithfield is also the home to Navigant Credit Union, Uvex Corporation, FGX International (AAi Foster Grant), the future home of Rubius Therapeutics and many other large and small companies.
The Crossing at Smithfield, with some fantastic shopping and dining opportunities is just off Interstate 295, and the town is home to Bryant University, a top business school!
And 7 Clarence Thurber Drive is right in the thick of spacious family living and community. Custom built in 2000 by current owner, Lou, this home was designed with everything a family could ever need and want, with detail to growth, shown in things like an ideal private room ready for an in-law suite, or private space for a child home from school. This sprawling brick ranch is a rare find with quality craftsmanship impossible to miss upon viewing.
I can hear Lou’s voice trail to a thousand different memories that he says are his favorite, but his mention of Prom stands out the most. As all three of his children have grown, he’s loved having their friends over for pre-Prom photos, day after brunches, pool gatherings through the summer, and the sounds of laughter in the dark, illuminated solely by the light of the fire pit. This home is more than just a place to live, it’s a place to live. Beautiful water views, accentuate the amazing water feature in the back yard; an 18′ x 36′ in-ground heated pool featuring a cabana including a bar and full bath, bring this to an entirely new outdoor hosting threshold!
With top ranked schools and close proximity to Providence and the Southern Massachusetts line, 7 Clarence Thurber gives you the serenity of a picturesque New England neighborhood, while offering great educational opportunities, the ease of highway access, in the midst of Rhode Island’s hot spots. Imagine the kids riding bikes until dark, and walks with the family on the quiet snow-filled streets. A hot chocolate in hand as you admire the gentle, crisp sounds of your feet on newly fallen snow. Summers spent with neighbors by the pool. First school days waking in your gorgeous home, surrounded by the new chill of Fall air. This is truly a home where your dreams don’t just come true, they unfold before your eyes.
And there is so much more to the home than just the home. An oversized 2 car garage, and a 32′ x 32′ block garage with 12′ door, is ready for the handy person or automobile enthusiast. Paired with wonderful architectural detail flowing through the first floor, with stained glass, beautiful trim and moulding, a stunning floor to ceiling fieldstone fireplace and sun porch. This home gives its owners a place to grow as a family. To entertain, to unwind. The home where you will enjoy your passions and create memories you’ve only dreamed about until now.
