About 1789 Kingstown Rd, South Kingstown Rhode Island
Welcome to the Isaac Peace Rodman House…a stately and substantial example of 1855 Italianate architecture and set on 4.37 acres in Wakefield. Once the home of Isaac Peace Rodman, a Civil War general in the Union Army and president of the Peace Dale Manufacturing Company, this important structure of solid cut granite is on the National Historic Register.
Light, bright and airy inside, this gracious home has been meticulously updated through the years yet still retains many original details including 11’ ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors, large rippled glass windows, claw foot tubs, built-in cabinetry, exposed brick, 2 working fireplaces, covered front porch, and cupola.
From a full-width covered porch, guests are welcomed into a tall central foyer flanked by a living room and informal sitting room; each with a fireplace. The first floor also includes a “cook’s kitchen” with a six-burner Thermador gas cooktop, Sub-Zero fridge and butler’s pantry, a well -proportioned formal dining room, and an office/library with half bath. The second floor has 3 bedrooms, a shared bath, and a master suite with a dressing room and private bath. Additional bedrooms and a large bathroom are located on the third floor. A one bedroom “in-law” apartment at the rear of the house provides privacy for guests.
The grounds are lush & expansive with formal gardens, a sunny, south-facing European patio area, an in-ground swimming pool, sprinkler system, and large, mature trees surrounding the periphery for a sense of privacy and seclusion. A garage and barn offer space for storage, studio space or a home gym.
