The fully finished basement is incredible, too, featuring a half bath with laundry area, and huge family room with full size windows and tall plastered ceilings. There is a walkout for easy backyard access, so you can enjoy all the spaces this home has to offer!

And to ease your mind, top of the line heating and mechanicals are throughout.

This location offers all amenities close by in Killingly Commons. Just 3 minutes away, this one plaza has almost everything you need from Stop & Shop to Five Below, Kay Jewelers and a nail salon! But even with all of those things being close to home, you still get the feel of the quiet farmlands and back country roads. And around town offers a lot of smaller places to enjoy; the mom and pop shops of a close community.

The surrounding schools are Killingly Intermediate School and Killingly High School, as well as Goodyear School, located just at the end of the road. This is both a preschool and special needs school.

Access to bigger cities being crucial to many, Putnam is a quick 10 minute ride, along with Brooklyn, Danielson, and Pomfret/Woodstock. Killingly is centrally located to those cities, making it ideal for commuters. In Putnam there are many great restaurants, which has become very up and coming, with their water fires and town events. A favorite spot of current owners is Black Dog tavern which is to-die-for barbecue with a special thick cut 1/2″ bacon cooked in brown sugar, peppercorn or mesquite! “Best bacon I have ever had!” …kind of makes us want to move in!

ec8fbd43190e2f3f133bf830af1b7842l-m3xd-w1020_h770_q80

100 Williamsville gives small town love to farmers and ice cream stands, while still accessible to those who love urban life and want the excitement of a blossoming city… but what means the most about this home?

We built this house from a shell forwards and we’re able to pick out all the features down to the design on the doors, and we brought our second child- our first daughter- home from the hospital to this house.

All the trappings of a memory-making home… holidays spent together, summers running in the grass, first and last days of school. 100 Williamsville Road certainly encompasses family home vibes from the photos alone. Give Aliesha Noonan & Associates a call at 401-580-8672 to see for yourself!!

Pawtucket Perfection: 50 Malvern Avenue

When the term family home comes to mind, there is nothing like 50 Malvern Ave, Pawtucket, RI

16681919_10154626207814440_7704927262991219151_n

The current owner, and soon-to-be-Floridian, has lived in this home since she was in 6th grade, falling in love with its location and layout- she purchased it from her parents! As she spoke about her home, her voice softened

My favorite memory here has to be that I got to raise my family in my childhood home.

There  is just something so special about that- and exudes a true love for the dwelling.

17103634_10154626208074440_3615197514402400623_n

This unique 3 bed Cape in the Darlington section of Pawtucket is teeming with customization from top to bottom. The love that has gone into the home, from the tailor-made kitchen cabinetry to the detailed, but simple, landscaping is welcoming and functional for all.

The corner lot delivers a yard with the perfect setting for children to play, learn and enjoy the warm summers and snowy school days, as well as a deck to relax on and chat with neighbors!

The location lends itself well to growing families- close to highway access and all the shopping and eating one could imagine, but totally out of the way of the hustle and bustle of a busy street! A favorite hot spot? Spumoni’s– serving up delicious Italian seafood dishes!

As if that wasn’t enticing enough, the neighborhood is both friendly and connected, but also close to the wonderful Potter-Burns school, which is being renovated down to the studs!

Featuring hardwoods throughout, a formal living room with a fireplace and beautiful oak floors, ample formal dining, plus an eat in kitchen with all of the bells and whistles, this is an entertainers delight, too!

Family gatherings, game nights with friends and celebrations will be enjoyed with the benefit of a huge finished lower level! Downstairs includes a half bath and plenty of space for movie nights, a crafters getaway, a playroom, or ample space for a nice home gym.

17021844_10154626207994440_6161593139570756798_n

The two bedrooms on the first floor and a large bedroom on the second floor lend some versatility to the buyer, as well.

17021571_10154626207979440_5408336271902479307_n

The practical side of home owning is well thought out for buyers, too, with the heating system, roof, and windows all replaced recently.

17022311_10154626207984440_3949972460141158965_n

Solid wood doors, beautiful period Cape Cod detail, and little to do but move in and make it your own, ensure 50 Malvern Avenue your perfect location!

An added bonus? You need to get ready to move for the summer and enjoy your Intex 15’x48″ above ground pool that comes with the house!

185 Warren Ave, Cranston, RI

Another Rhode Island home to feature this week!! We are just so in love with what we’ve got, especially in the heat and humidity, like this beauty in the Oaklawn section of Western Cranston. It is sure to cool you down- find out why!

185 Warren Avenue in Cranston is a family and entertainers’ dream home. The last house, situated on a cul-de-sac in a great neighborhood, this home is chock-full of everything you could ask for, from granite to a cabana.

cabana

Yes, a cabana.

First some details:

So what else is 185 Warren Avenue boasting?

This perfectly placed home has 3 bedrooms and 1 full bath. There is a beautiful eat-in kitchen, white and bright with a much sought-after granite counter top. All appliances are included!

kitchhen

The lower level is home to a built-in bar, for entertaining, a laundry room, and, of course, all the mechanicals.  An attached garage, with an opener, of course, highlights the outside! Perfect for storage, a car, the bikes; you name it! The driveway is also spacious and fits, at least, 3 cars.

basement bar

The best part for summer? Central air! …oh, and the pool. A rather sizable, very well maintained pool.

pool

And the outdoor shower.

And the cabana. If you have a party no one is bringing water into the house to change or use the bathroom- they go right in the cabana.

Was that enough “ands”?

And what else?

Though situated nicely off the beaten path, there is quick access to highways… shopping, the commuter bus line, schools- both private an public, recreational activities like tennis and swimming! Just minutes from 95, 295, the Warwick Mall, Route 2. You can get to some outstanding restaurants, the best schools in the area, shopping galore, or even up to the beaches and parks with ease! Perfect for all interests.

But back to the street: NO outside traffic, all neighbors, and the street is more like extended family with friends always around for community.

exterior

We’ve got the inside scoop that this neighborhood is VERY kid-friendly!! In fact, the Elementary school for 185 Warren Ave is ranked number 5 in the WHOLE state of Rhode Island.

Current owners Amy and Jeff’s favorite memory, involves their sweet son, Landon:

The day we took Landon home. It was a beautiful summer day. Every one of our neighbors came over and brought us food. They all said ” we don’t want to impose, just wanted to bring you a meal.” Now that is community.

Aliesha Noonan & Associates proudly represent this home and sellers and while we know the neighborhood will be missed, we’re excited for this family to take their next steps on their journey! Give us a call at 401-580-8672 for more information today!
