Selling your Barrington home?

Get an accurate valuation of your home and learn how to prepare it for showings

A homes value is determined by much more than online data. Online evaluations like Zillows ‘zestimates’  simply can’t tell you the full story. Factors such as hyper-local market criteria, seasonal buyer demand, and  interior condition will also determine how much a buyer will offer for your home.

What's it like to live in Barrington?

Shopping & Things To Do

Barrington strikes a rare balance for shoppers — you can get big retail stores and small businesses in the same spot. For example, the Barrington Shopping Center houses Shaw’s, CVS, Ace Hardware, and Starbucks. But you’ll also find several locally-owned businesses in the same plaza, such as Barrington Books, LOFT, and Encore. All up and down Route 114 you’ll find smaller shopping plazas with local craft stores, gift shops, and restaurants.

Barrington Public Library & Town Hall

Barrington has a beautiful hilltop location for their Town Hall and public library, where both overlook Town Center and Route 114. The Town Hall building was built in 1888 and features a “medieval” architecture look, with several gables and intricate stonework throughout. The public library was originally built in 1807 and used as a school until it was repurposed in the 1970s.

Restaurants & Nightlife

Barrington is not exactly a nightlife “destination” among the East Bay. In fact, up until 2011, Barrington was the only “dry town” in Rhode Island (alcohol sales were prohibited outside of restaurants). That said, Barrington does have great places to eat. And there are plenty of bars in surrounding towns, including Warren, Bristol, Seekonk, and East Providence.
