Built in 1771, Phanuel Bishop’s House is one of Rumford’s signature historic homes. Step back into time as you explore this Georgian Colonial, built on the 1640’s foundation of Samuel Newman’s home – burned down in King Phillip’s War.
Allow the home’s original period features, two end chimneys with five fireplaces, and original wood floors to transport you back in time as you tour the sunny living room, dining room, and galley-style kitchen. With a splash of modern-day conveniences, the kitchen has stainless steel appliances, a gas cooking range, plenty of wood counter space, and walk-out access to a brick patio, perfect for entertaining indoors and outdoors.
Outside, the house rests on a ½ acre of cleared land. A structure that once served as the original summer kitchen can be used as a wonderful potting shed. What was once a barn serves as a three car garage with an upstairs loft.
Upstairs, the second floor hosts three bedrooms, each with a fireplace and plenty of closet space. The large master bedroom also has built-ins and a separate room that originally functioned as a nursery. Completing the second floor is a full bathroom.
The attic provides extra space for storage, a home office, or a recreational room.
Set in the heart of Rumford, this home is in a highly walkable area. Take an easy stroll to the Seven Stars Bakery less than a block away, or take your pick from an array of country clubs and golf courses, with the Wannamoisett Country Club less than a mile away. The home is also a 15 minute commute to Downtown Providence, while easy access to the major interstates allows for convenient travel throughout Rhode Island and nearby Massachusetts.
