Jack's Real Deal - Revolutionary War Lieutenant Called This Colonial Home


September 1, 2023
This circa 1799 Colonial in Warren was built by early town settler Buell Carter. The Carter family kept the house for more than a century. The formal living room features an original fireplace and detailed crown molding.

Continental Army Lt. Buell Carter once lived in this colonial at 219 Kent Road.

Born in 1766, Carter was considered a person of influence in town. He served in public office and one of his children built this house around 1799.

The five-acre property features a one-bedroom guest cottage, barn, patio, teak outdoor shower and stone walls. The main house has a large entry way to a formal living room with a decorative fireplace and crown molding. The formal dining room has a working fireplace and window seat.

There are four bedrooms, which a prior owner rented starting in 1999 for several years.

“It’s unusual because at one point it was an inn, all the bedrooms are en suite, all the bedrooms have their own bathroom,” said listing agent Ron Leal.

The Carter family owned the house for more than a century. They sold in the early 1900s and the property changed hands five times since.
