While Barrington has an excellent school system, the previous comment is right. I've done a search for homes in Barrington with at least 2 acres of land, and found that the lowest priced property is listed for 1.8 mil. It is modest in the sense that it only has 3 bedrooms.. but the price is quite high. There are other area's in Rhode Island with great school districts AND more parcels with 2+ acreage.
You can visit http://www.ride.ri.gov/RIDE/Data.aspx
to find out more information about the school districts in Rhode Island.
If Barrington school district is a "must have" for you, please feel free to contact me so we can talk about the Barrington market.
