MLS # 1193970 - Sold
Cajacet Farm is one of Jamestown's most iconic and beloved waterfront properties. Set on the picturesque and treasured Narragansett Bay with almost 5 acres of gorgeous coastal gardens, rolling lawn, original colonial stone walls and many of the largest and most spectacular specimen trees in the state including copper and fern-leaf beeches, tulip and the largest holly tree east of the Mississippi. Built in 1690 for Capt. Thomas Paine, a wealthy "mariner, soldier and patriot" who commanded a fleet of ships and successfully defended Newport from French privateers. Local legend is that Capt Kidd visited in 1699 and asked his friend to hide his treasure while he returned to England. Kidd was arrested and never returned.... This remarkable 4188 sq ft home has 5 bedroom/2.5 baths with gorgeous wide plank floors, 5 period fireplaces, lovely cozy colonial spaces along with an updated chef's kitchen, bright and fully appointed baths, a 4 car garage and the most perfect stone terrace stretching across the waterside of the house, perfect for al fresco dining or entertaining while watching the comings and goings of the endless boating activity. There is a private deepwater dock which will accommodate a large boat along with stairs to the rocky beach. The one-of-a-kind stone boathouse has an incredible entertainment room, vaulted ceiling and wet-bar set on the waterfront is one of the most amazing structures found along the RI coast. This iconic and lovingly owned property is pure joy.
