130 Mattity Road, in North Smithfield is set beautifully on over 5.5 acres of lush landscape, which has served its owners well. The privacy in and of itself is spectacular, as there are no neighbors to the front or back, and to the left and right, there’s about 100 yards of beauty. The quiet surrounding the home leaves nights to sit on one [of the two] decks after supper and enjoy the sounds of nature. Or, during hot months, jump in the pool and work up an appetite, then enjoy a meal outside- a drink to end the day. The perfect place to reconnect with family.
But it’s not just the summer months that will leave you loving this home. During the winter, after the day is done, settle yourself by the fireplace in the living room to warm up. Our sellers loved to start the wood burning stove in the great room to dry out their clothes after a winter storm clean up! A perfectly toasty way to settle in after a storm! And if you’re truly looking for your own winter wonderland, owner Craig, “We also go for walks out in the woods on our almost 6 acres which abuts a heavily wooded area.” What more romantic way can you spend a winter day?
Just imagine coming home…A long winding driveway, sprinkled with colorful perennials, brings you to an over-sized open garage/carport built only 5 years ago, perfect for the car enthusiast. Current owners, Craig and Diane, LOVE this part of the home very much for making life so much easier! Up to 4 cars can fit there, so you don’t have to brush off any snow before you leave for work, unloading groceries in the rain you won’t get wet, AND it’s a good place to wait for the school bus- which actually stops right at the end of the driveway for the kids! And in the large front yard, Craig and Diane enjoy decorating with antique sleuths, carriages and buggies that they both restore. “We decorate them year round for the major holidays,” he says, his true love of the home is nearly jumping off his person!
Inside this custom ranch has all of the rustic charm you could ever imagine, with completely updated kitchen and baths featuring new tile floor, granite and stainless appliances, and a wonderfully accented back splash. The formal living area boasts a fireplace and there are hardwood floors running through the majority of the first floor. An expansive family room showcases a wood stove with fieldstone surround and gorgeous soaring windows in a space with a country feel reminiscent of a mountain lodge.
The potential in-law in the lower level with walkout has such versatility it could suit almost any buyer, for now or when they’re ready to grow. All of the major mechanicals in this home have been attended to with some extras thrown in, including a generator, newer pool, and shed!
North Smithfiled, itself, is a fantastic town to live in, with current owners raving about Condessa, a Mexican restaurant on Route 7, and Laura’s, with great prices and service! Imagine date nights and family dinners alike! With 130 Mattity Road only 5 minutes from Route 146 and 10 minutes to Route 295, the world that seems so far away is actually rather close by! Walmart. Lowes, Kohls and Lincoln Mall are all a 15 minute drive from home. You are far enough out in the woods to have peace and quiet, but still close enough to stores, restaurants and gas stations- even Providence is only 25 minutes away.
North Smithfield is a safe community, with the fire and police stations just minutes away if needed. Craig and Diane’s children went to North Smithfield public schools right up until graduating at the high school. The schools are in the top 5 in Rhode Island for education, with plenty of extra curricular activities at the schools to enjoy as well. The high school and middle school are close to home- only about 2 miles away, and the bus will pick up and drop off right at the end of the driveway! The public library and town hall are only a short drive up Rt 5 to nearby Slatersville, as well as Bryant College and CCRI.
