I love every inch of this house! Kitt’s Tavern was built in 1740! Just imagine the stories it holds! There are hand hewn beams, original wide plank flooring, wavy glass windows, and a rare stenciled paneling. There is even the original two seater outhouse. Someone worked very hard on this house over the years. Very impressive. Built in 1740. Located on 2.3 acres in West Greenwich, Rhode Island. Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 2,095 square feet. $615,000

From the Zillow listing:


Kitt’s Tavern (circa 1740) is an amazing example of pre-revolutionary architecture and a slice of Rhode Island history that has been lovingly preserved over the years to create a comfortable and very unique family compound! The original Tavern building serves as a 3 bedroom, 2 bath residence with hand hewn beams, 6 fireplaces, original wide plank pine floors, wavy glass windows, rare stenciled paneling, a “cook’s kitchen” with Viking range, custom cabinetry, built-in appliances, unpolished granite counters & walk-in pantry, 2 bedrooms w/walk-in closets, 2nd floor laundry, plus a full walk up attic, full basement, and a beautiful stone 3-season room adjacent to the original “2-seater” outhouse! Hidden behind a high fence lies an amazing and unexpected in-ground gunite pool with lush landscaping, a waterfall, expansive patio & deck, and charming pool house – a magical and private space on a hot summer day for family & friends to gather. A collection of wonderful and quirky outbuildings scattered over the 2.3 acre property gives you the sense of being in a little village… there are stables, a chicken coop, Ally’s cottage & cottage garden, Ryan’s workshop, and the “she-shed/potting shed”.
