Choice Acres

-A A +A
Mid-to-late 18th century. 115 Winsor Ave.

This plain five-bay house, later expanded to seven bays, acquired its handsome projecting Greek Revival–revival entrance vestibule sometime in the early twentieth century. The house has been re-sided, unfortunately, but at least this change is not obtrusive, except for the clipon thinness at the corners. It is part of what is now a horse farm, which also includes a masonry barn, rare for Rhode Island.
