The Mill House: History Preserved New owners have lovingly restored and updated one of the iconic homes of Little Compton

When Charlotte DuHamel and Dr. Greg Licholai first stepped into the historic 1886-built Mill House in Little Compton in August of 2019, they weren’t looking to buy a new home, but their curiosity drew them“Wein.had driven by it many times and knew about the house and some of its history,” says Dr. Licholai. “But it was overgrown and hard to see from the street, so we decided to walk through, just for kicks. Seeing how on the inside it was still so beautifully preserved, we both fell instantly in love and put in a bid.” But they also knew that owning the home meant preserving it.

Charlotte DuHamel and Dr. Greg Licholai, current owners of The Mill House, which they purchased in 2019 before renovating with historically sensitive updates.

The original, three-story windmill, built in 1812 as a working mill, was first located on Wilbor House farm and then moved across West Main Road to a property near the water. When the land where it is now located was purchased in 1886 by Reverend Thomas Slicer and his wife Adeline, they purchased the mill and moved it up to their prop erty. Connecting with Little Comp ton artist Sydney Burleigh, a found er of the Providence Art Club, and Providence architect Edmund Will son, the Slicers had them design an arts-and-crafts style summer house to be wrapped around the windmill.

The home’s original kitchen was expanded and modernized.

“We told our builders and crafts men, who were mostly local and became as passionate about this project as we were, that if there was any risk of damaging walls or floors during the restoration we would stop the process,” says Dr. Licholai. Their own historical nod to the house’s history was finding an origi nal 1840 weathervane mold of the Rhode Island Red that they had made and now sits on the Dingy house, a two-bedroom cottage built in 1933 next to the Mill House and a comfy place for overflow visitors.

“We have already had family gath erings here in the summer and for Christmas,” says DuHamel. “And look forward to many more.”

The Mill’s place in Little Compton history is significant, says Marjory O’Toole, executive director of the Lit tle Compton Historical society. “The way that it incorporates the windmill is a wonderful reminder that we were and continue to be a farming community,” she says. “It is also one of Little Compton’s earliest houses purposefully built as a summer

water.The larger bedroom walls have Burleigh’s tinted plaster artwork with images still intact, like an owl on its perch, flowers, and a favorite motif of his, a fleur-de-lis, all restored and treated to prevent further damage. Burleigh also included carved plaster with inscriptions which remain; one inscription on the first floor, from John Keats’ “Ode to a Nightingale” reads, ‘Charmed magic casements opening on the foam,’ and sits above a window which overlooks the Sakonnet River. The owners have collected several of Burleigh’s paint ings and sprinkled them throughout the first-floor dining area. Along with repairs to the plaster, the current owners installed layers of insulation, refinished the original floors, and upgraded both wiring and plumbing; they added new heating and air conditioning systems as well. They updated all bathrooms, enlarged and updated the kitchen, and built an outdoor deck off the kitchen. New energy efficient win dows were installed throughout the house, carefully chosen to replicate the originals, maintaining the own ers’ goal of keeping the home’s his toric features intact.

Cherry Arnold, sales associate at Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty, who represented the buyers in the sale and is also a long-time Little Compton resident, knows the house well and says it tells a rich and fascinating story of life in Little Compton in the 1880s. “From the history, the artwork, the dramatic ocean vistas and being surrounded by farmland and stone walls, I’ve always felt that the Mill House is the beating heart of Little Compton,” she says. “Our community is so fortunate to have such passionate new owners take over stewardship of this special property.”

The nearly two-year restoration of their home, including renovation of the Dinghy, was well worth the wait, says Duhamel. Dr. Licholai adds: “A lot of people in town have had a relationship with this house over the years. Whether it was visiting for parties or staying here as guests, they tell us how grateful they are that not only is the house still here but that walking in today, they can still relive memories from years ago.”

The FamilyPerfectHome

The owners renovated an historic home in Barrington into a space designed top to bottom for family fun Catherine “Cat” Lea and her husband, Jason, transformed a circa-1875 Barrington “summer cottage” into the perfect family home. The firepit shown here is designed to mimic the rocks off their shore (background).

As would be expected in a home built for today’s standards, the kitchen anchors everything. A massive island is the center of the space, with seats for all six mem bers of the family — “we definitely eat most of our meals here,” Cat said.

Continued on page 14 13

The new kitchen includes island seating for the full family of six, along with open views out to Narragansett Bay.

In the first phase of renovation, they reshaped much of this first floor. They redesigned a living room at the back of

Catherine and Jason Lea were living in an 1,800-square-foot home on the East Side of Providence when they had their fourth child in a span of seven years. They needed more space and a family-oriented home, and they didn’t want to pay for somebody else’s renovation. If they were going to spend a lot of money for a big home, they wanted it to be their home, designed the way they wanted it. They found the perfect opportunity in an historic home along the waterfront in the Alfred Drowne neighborhood of Bar rington. They bought the “Henry Metcalf House,” built circa 1875, which had been owned by the same woman for more than three decades. Four years and multiple renovations later, the home is everything they dreamed it could be. “Cat,” “Jay” and their four children, ages 4 to 11, today live in a spectacular home that is family friendly in every way. Without changing the footprint of the house in any significant way, they renovat ed nearly every square inch of the proper ty.“The bones were good,” Cat said, but “we’d open up a wall and go ‘holy moly’ ” about what they found within. They often found that one project expanded into another, especially in a house where so much was not designed to today’s build ing codes. “We’d touch a stair, and before you knew it we were rebuilding the entire staircase to bring it to code,” Cat said. Only the third-floor tower retains much of its original design. Every other room, floor, window, wall, staircase, closet and space has been touched, changed, moved or improved in some way. The first floor – modern family living

The kitchen connects to an equally vaulted family room, all of it facing walls of windows with Narragansett Bay lapping against the back of the property.

The master bathroom, with steam shower and tub overlooking the bay.

The home’s classic library space, with walls of built-in shelves, is now the kids’ playroom, packed with books, games and toys. In the 1970s, the owner of the prop erty installed a greenhouse, connect ing the home to the large, detached, three-bay garage. The Leas removed the greenhouse, but not before finding a home for it. The entire greenhouse was dismantled, piece by piece, and donated to a farm in Westerly. That greenhouse footprint then became permanent living space, home to a mudroom designed perfectly for a family of six. All four kids have their own oversized cubbies, and the par ents have their own mini-closets/cub bies.

They remade a three-season room at the back corner of the property into a year-round space, which later became a home office during the peak of the pandemic.

The Leas’ front yard screams family fun, with trampoline, playground, basketball court, tree swing and more, which typically attract their four children plus friends from the neighborhood.

One dynamic area of this first floor was lost during renovation. A “secret” staircase — it was literally hidden behind a bookcase — was removed, regrettably, during the remodel.

A second renovation added another magical space to the second floor, when Dad got his dream room. Jason, a scratch golfer, now enjoys a spectac ular space above the garage, with enormous golf simulator, sur round-sound speakers, elegant bar, and towering ceiling with its own, lightfilled tower.

On any given day, a passerby will find a trampoline, wooden playground, tree swing and basketball court, along with an array of children’s toys, balls, bikes and probably a few kids, some of them Leas, some of them neighbors. It’s a stark contrast to so many of the multi-million-dollar waterfront estates throughout the region. This place is clearly home to kids, and it is designed for fun. Behind the house, the stretch of land between home and shore is breathtaking The Leas reshaped every thing in the rear of the property. Today it hosts a huge patio, a rock fire pit designed to match the rocks protruding from the water off their back shoreline, an elegant pergola, and an outdoor kitchen and outdoor shower.“When we get a crowd here, it can be bananas,” Cat said. “Last weekend we had a few families here — like 12 children and eight adults — and we were all eating dinner outside. It’s nice to have all that space.” This house is built for family gather ings, which is exactly what the Leas wanted.“Jason and I both come from big families. We’re both one of four chil dren.

When the current owner found Bristol’s Charles H. Church House on the market in 2015, she knew she had found “the one.”“We were living in the UK at the time, and we had some clear ideas about what we were looking for,” she said of the dream home she and her wife had in mind. “We wanted to be somewhere that was somewhat rural, surrounded by nature, but really convenient to cafés, restaurants and shops, which is kind of a difficult ask. And in an ideal scenario, we’d love to have a water view … So when this house came on the market it kind of ticked all those boxes quite nice ly.”So nicely, in fact, that she moved quickly to purchase, still sight-unseen by her wife. “That’s not something I would have done if the house was finished … but it was clear that it needed very extensive renovation, a complete over haul.” The couple visited the home together for the first time on their anni versary, and began making a plan to make it their own. Built in 1881 by descendants of one of Bristol’s oldest families, the Charles H. Church house is Modern Gothic style with a main gable roof, lower gable-roof wings, and several triangular dormers. Original exterior details include a com pound front door with etched-glass pan els and a wraparound porch.

The Charles H. Church House recently underwent a significant historic restoration which included building a replica of the original barn (in rear), interior renovations to the main house, and a full restoration of the miniature church (a homage to the family that owned the property through most of its history), which had itself fallen into disrepair.

An addition to the rear of the building made room for this bright and functional kitchen.

The house also came with a gabled barn, but by 2015, it was listing so badly that there was no way to bring it back. The couple enlisted the help of architect Melissa Hutchinson.

Continued on page 22 21

“The clients instantly fell in love with the setting of the historic property overlooking Bristol Har bor,” said Hutchinson. “It was important to preserve the architec tural elements of the original house that give it such unique character, while providing a more open concept floor plan for enter taining and modern-day living. The house and barn are great exam ples of how historic details, char acter and craftsmanship can be successfully restored and pre served while accommodating modernHutchinsonamenities.”partnered with Charles E.

The doors to the barn, designed to be an exact replica of the one that was deemed unsound and torn down. A miniature church at the front of the property was fully restored during the renovation.

Contractors, and they came up with a plan to rebuild the barn. They created an exact replica of the exterior of the original struc ture — something they were only able to do after gaining local and state approval, as the property is part of the Poppasquash Farms Historic District, on the National Register of Historic Places since 1980. “We had hoped to restore the original barn, but we deter mined, and a civil engineer confirmed, that it was structurally deficient,” said contractor Dean Nadalin.Inside the main house, the old kitchen was jammed into a win dowless back corner, not ideal for a couple that loves to cook, and knew they wanted a kitchen that would serve as the heart of the home. A small addition to the back of the building created the space for a fully modern and bright space that does just that.

Another significant interior alteration was the removal of a wall that was on the right imme diately as you walk into the house, letting light into a former ly dark corner of the home and making the entrance both more grand and more welcoming at the same time. On the second floor, four bedrooms were changed to three, allowing for an en suite master bathroom. In several rooms, the new was made to look old. Shelving in the library looks original to the home, including a classic rolling library ladder. Original sliding doors (with original hardware) between the rooms were rehabilitated to once again glide smoothly, and the tile surrounding the wood-burning fireplace in the kitchen is new as well. Expertly hand-crafted moldings were made to match where needed. With a massive copper beech keeping an eye over the com pound, the home has a grand presence overlooking all of Bris tol Harbor.

The library’s newly constructed shelves blend seamlessly into the 1881 interior.

Breweries

Moving to their new location on Bristol Fer ry Road earlier this year, Ragged Island is on 37 acres of farmland and also recently opened up their state-of-the-art brewing barn in a newly renovated barn with a 10-barrel brewhouse. The 1890s farmhouse with a greenhouse, multiple outdoor decks and amazing views of the Narragansett Bay has been remodeled as a taproom for tastings and retail sales. A fun and knowledgeable staff pours beers from the tap, among them Liquid Hugs, Hoop House and Suggestion Box is Full. Upcoming food vendor partners include Newport Chow der Co., Friskie Fries and at the end of the month a Ragged Island Steak Fry with New England Grass Fed and Island Catering Girl (tickets required). Visitors are also welcome to bring their own food. Hours are Mon day-Wednesday 2pm-8pm, Thursday-Satur day 12 - 9 p.m. and Sunday 12 - 7 p.m. Sharing a farm with Westport Rivers Winery, all of Buzzards Bay’s craft beers are brewed with locally grown grain and Massachusetts grown hops. Favorite brews include Golden Flounder, a blonde ale brewed with local barley and with white wheat malts, and Buzzards Bay IPA, which changes up yearly with every new crop of hops. Come for their week end Food Truck Farm Fest, featuring live music; on Tuesdays the Tacofied Truck visits, and Wednesdays and Thursdays it’s the Food Fighters Truck (smash burgers); all events promise great family fun with cornhole, bad minton and a disc golf mini course on the grounds. Open Friday 3-8 p.m., Saturdays 1 - 8 p.m. Ragged Island Brewing Co. 54 Bristol Ferry Rd. www.raggedislandbrewing.comPortsmouth
