This updated home from 1780 is as unique as the village it resides in. Set within the village district of Charlestown, Rhode Island, you are amongst the finest open ocean beaches, salt ponds and wooded trails that New England has to offer. Where else can you find a coastal town center without a traffic light? The rare zoning that is Traditional Village District (TVD) allows you to operate your business from your home, and the 2,900 S.F. of living area provides ample room to do so. TVD encourages small-scale business and residential uses that are unique to Charlestown village and is intended to preserve the rural small town character of the Town. Your private fenced in rear yard leads to your three outer buildings including a heated office and two bay garage with loft. This corner lot with 240 FT of frontage infuses a combination of modern day living, work space, and history. When 289 Narrow Lane was built, French troops were landing at Newport, Rhode Island, to fight alongside the Patriot militiamen of the Continental Army for American independence from Great Britain. This is a small price to pay for such a rare and versatile property.
