10 ENTERTAINMENT / REAL ESTATE NOVEMBER 13-19, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE & OBSERVER LIVING EDITION Contemporary offers space and privacy NORTH SMITHFIELD – Sitting on 1.49 acres in North Smithfield, this contemporary home offers bright, open space and plenty of pri- vacy. "This contemporary is in a super cool location," Scott McGee, the list- ing agent, said. "It's private but close to everything." Travel down the long driveway and admire the landscaped front yard along with custom stone work. There is plenty of space to park in the driveway as well as the oversized, two-car garage. "This is not a cookie-cutter house," McGee said. "There are wood ceil- ings and skylights." The skylights are throughout add- ing some brightness. Walk through the front door and to the left is the dining room, with the stairs for the second floor in front of you. Also straight on is a hallway leading to the living room with cathedral ceilings. From the second floor hallway you can look down into the living room. The floors throughout the house are varied, with hardwood, ceramic tile, carpet and vinyl. And the layout is open, as you can see each room from the other. With the windows and skylights and the openness of the interior, there is plenty of light. The living room opens up into an eat-in kitchen where there are sliding glass doors leading to the back deck. The kitchen offers stainless steel appliances, granite counters and a stone back splash. The master suite is located on the main level. The master has its own bath with separate tub and shower as well as double sinks. There are four bedrooms, the other three resid- ing on the second level and an office. There is a poten- tial for a fifth bed- room as well. Overall there are two full bath- rooms and one half. There are two floors plus a walk- out lower level. "It's a cool, nice house," McGee said. From the back deck, looking out on the backyard there are views of woods surround- ing the property. There is also a concrete area further on in the backyard that can be flooded to be used as a hockey rink. Street hockey or tennis could also be played on it. This contemporary, built in 1995, offers 3,482 square feet of living space. It is listed by McGee at Re/ Max Properties, Stearns/McGee Team, at $499,000. There will be an open house on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more inquiries or a private showing, con- tact McGee at 401-639-2906 or at his office at 401-356-1519.

Music Hall of Famers band together to benefit the Paul Murphy Ensemble PAWTUCKET – The Met, 1005 Main St., will hold a memorial fundraising concert on Sunday, Nov. 17, at 4 p.m., to benefit the Paul Murphy Touring Ensemble at the Rhode Island Philharmonic Music School. Murphy was a well-known jazz, R&B and blues guitarist who died in 1994 and the event marks the 25th anniversary of his death. He was posthumously inducted into the Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame in 2018. Most of the musi- cians who will be performing were not only Murphy's band- mates and contemporaries, but also some of his dearest friends. In addition to a performance by the Murphy Ensemble, the program will feature sets by members of Murphy's band The Groovemasters with Gary Cummings and close associ- ates Rob Nelson & The Robcats. Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame inductees on the bill are his friends Rizzz who will be joined by members of The Wild Turkey Band, and bands led by James Montgomery and Duke Robillard with whom Murphy recorded internationally released albums. Murphy's career ended in 1994 when he died suddenly in Brazil at age 40 while on tour. The R&B and jazz ensemble at the music school was established in his name to honor his legacy and contributions to the Ocean State's musical heritage. The group fea- tures horns, guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and vocals and is open to advanced high school and col- lege age musicians by audition. Admission is $20. Tickets will be available at the door, but advance purchase is sug- gested. Visit y6ot4q2q .
