THINGS TO IN DO EASTHAM MA

EASTHAM

Known for its lovely waterfront homes and estates, bustling downtown and excellent schools, it’s easy to understand why many young families choose to settle here. Since the 1980s Eastham has attracted an increasingly affluent population including academics, professionals and entrepreneurs who enjoy the upscale atmosphere, the rural flavor and the close proximity to Providence.

If you know me, you know I love a gimmick, so obviously Barrington’s Octagon House is right up my eight-sided alley.

This home, also known as the Hawley House, is quite old! Built circa 1860, the residence follows an octagonal house plan, a short-lived style that was popular for only about a decade during the middle of the 19th century.

The form mostly derives from one nutcase: Orson Squire Fowler. Fowler published a book titled The Octagon House in 1848 that espoused the benefits of an octagonal home: cheap to build, natural light on all sides, excellent ventilation, and additional living space.

The style never really truly took off in the United States (estimates say there are only about 2,000 or so of these houses still standing across the country), so when you see one of these in the wild, you’re looking at a pretty rare building typology!

Oh wait, back to Fowler. Why don’t you hear more about this character in American architecture history, someone who created a very idiosyncratic and special moment in our nation’s built environment? Well, Fowler was a leading American phrenologist, which means he believed in a pseudoscience that proposed your mental capacity could be judged externally by the shape and bumps of your skull.

And yes, before you ask, he thought Black people were an inferior race due to their head shapes and that Jews were an inherently evil and deceitful people. He was also, strangely, an abolitionist, but I guess that all goes out the window once you make skull racism your personal brand.

Anyway, octagon houses. Super sick.

My weekend is fully booked...

So excited to start reading my advance copy of vanessalillie’s new thriller, For The Best. I interviewed Vanessa last year at Barrington Books Retold when she was on tour promoting her previous work, Little Voices, a murder mystery that was set right here in Rhode Island. (You’ll be hooked from the 1st pages and utterly shocked when you find out the twist at the end.)  

Also, we announced the latest Read By Patty J BarringtonBooks Pick for July & August this week. It’s Alex Trebek’s new memoir, The Answer Is...Reflections On My Life. Hope you’ll pick up a copy at BBR or the original location in Barrington and read along with us here on IG starting next week.

katemarkerinteriors did it again 😍

Neatly nestled among 6 acres of rolling hills and surrounding woodland in Barrington Hills is a graceful, contemporary take on a classic Belgian farmhouse. Designed for a family of five and defined by natural light and casual airiness, it’s as befitting of the European countryside as it is of suburban Chicago—which was exactly the goal of the homeowner when the house was in the planning phase.

Since I just watched Bill Murray in Sofia Coppola’s new movie “On The Rocks,” I was tempted to use his quote about every pizza being a personal one if you believe in yourself because that’s how I live my life... 

We took a little Rhode trip over to pomodoropizzeriabristol in Bristol last night for some salads and pizza and really enjoyed everything. Food was so, so good!

I hope everyone had a safe, fun, and relaxing holiday weekend! To celebrate having a three day weekend, I give you this very patriotic house.

This large, stately residence is Barrington’s Robertson House, built in 1898. Currently serving as the White House (not that White House), an events and art space, the Robertson House is an eye-catching landmark on the town’s Main Street.

The house is replete with lovely Neoclassical details throughout (you want Corinthian columns, you got Corinthian columns!) and was inspired by the clean, white grandeur of the 1893 Columbian Exposition.

It was built by the socially active Robertsons, John and Julia, who lived in the home until Julia’s death in 1917 and John’s passing a year later. In the years after, it was also a Spanish Flu pandemic hospital and a nursing home before Barrington bought it in 2007.

The home was restored with great detail and, in 2014, was added to the National Register for Historic Places.

Needless to say Barrington Village has a pretty house of worship. Inside All Saints Church I was greeted by Sylvia Scott, the warden. She was in the process of locking up for the day, but kindly hung about so I could look around

Happy #mansardmonday, old house lovers! The “broken” mansard roof is such a striking characteristic Second Empire houses here in New England. Does it have a more proper architectural name? Either way, I love it.

Hands up who is off National Trust-ing (or even just exploring) today then? 🙋🏼‍♀️

We went down Somerset way yesterday after lunch at thepearorchardltd , to have a mooch around Barrington Court. The house is sadly closed at the moment, which is a great shame as apparently it’s furniture less and great for kids exploring as you’re less worried about what they’re touching ✋🏻

But we happily wandered the gardens, which were extensive. We had a nose in the cafe and the shops and we even played a few sets of tennis on the court there - worth a visit 💚

“A lot of you have been asking” 🤪🤣 Hahaha that’s the stereotypical influencer way to start off something right?! In all seriousness, I do often get asked to share more about my daily schedules as a morning show host (in and out of work) and time management tips. 📝 This week I’m working on documenting everything I do after work with my afternoons, and I’ll share it all on the blog soon! Just finished documenting my Monday after work and I don’t think it was super interesting 😂 but I know I’d love to read a blog post like this from someone else, so maybe y’all will be into this?! Also- this outfit is on the blog today! 🧥http://liketk.it/3etcS #liketkit liketoknow.it #LTKstyletip #LTKitbag #barringtongifts #barringtonstannetote #trenchcoat ...

📱✍🏼 If you know me, you know I’m a planner. I’m the 10-year-in-advance kind of planner. I foresee what is best for myself and my clients and their future (if asked, I won’t overstep). It’s a good thing I plan, because buying or selling a home is no overnight task. It’s a series of small steps and a master plan to accomplish the goal! 💯💪🏼

If you’re looking to sell or buy in today’s market, let’s talk about what plan is best for you!
