RPL’s DeRentis Lists Grand $10 Million Estate in Exeter

Residential Properties Ltd. is excited to announce that Sales Associate Jim DeRentis has just listed 1-20 Gerald’s Farm Drive in Exeter, RI for $10 million. “This is one of the great estate properties in the Northeast,” DeRentis noted. “Located on 27+ splendid acres in Exeter, Gerald’s Farm offers utmost privacy and quiet while providing easy access to Providence, Newport, Boston, and New York. This is a one-of-a-kind ‘gentleman’s farm’ that takes full advantage of Southern Rhode Island’s natural beauty.”  

Situated at the crossroads of Exeter, North Kingstown, and East Greenwich, this elegant country compound is nestled in a rolling landscape with tree-lined valleys and verdant, manicured lawns. The main estate house, one of the property’s three buildings, is the epitome of a refined rural retreat. The soaring foyer catches the eye with a marble pool and wall of French doors overlooking the gardens. Defined by its connection to the New England countryside, the home’s main living spaces welcome the outside in through stunning fenestration and an airy, open feel. The spacious kitchen is a chef’s dream with custom cabinetry, marble countertops, and top-of-the-line appliances. A first-floor primary suite, complete with a spa-like ensuite bath, makes this the perfect multi-generational property. Up the graceful, winding staircase are three more generous bedrooms, two marble-clad baths, and a home gym. Continuing out to the park-like grounds, a separate, two-story carriage house features a dramatic vaulted main hall, ideal for entertaining on a grand scale. Above is a full in-law apartment allowing for a gracious guest suite. The crowning touch is an Amish-built barn featuring a sprawling terrace and fire pit, enhancing the already exceptional list of amenities.
