Sited on 0.58 acres within Locust Valley Farm which was created and protected by a renowned RI architect & his wife, the Mill was last used as an architect’s office but was originally a textile mill. Seeking the next owner with the vision to use the property as a single-family home, professional office, crafts shop, art studio or retail gallery. The Mill (3620sf on 3 floors) needs some updating; the shop (2302sf on 2 floors) requires full renovation. Lawton’s Mill is one of the few small, early 19th century textile rural mills remaining in RI. The attached shop was originally built to house the water wheel operated generator & to act as a general repair shop for the entire farm. Set in a bucolic area of RI surrounded by rolling hills, Locust Valley Farm is located on the banks of the pristine Fisherville Brook & abuts the Fisherville Brook Wildlife Refuge, the Audubon's largest public property in RI. To preserve & protect this remarkably intact example of a rural settlement spanning from the mid 1700’s – 1920’s, there are Locust Valley Farm covenants in place. Conveniently located near 2 railroad stations (Amtrak & Wickford Junction) for train service to NYC & Boston and only 30 minutes to both Providence and Newport. Can be sold with MLS 1269583.
