Looking for a larger-than-most single family, with tons of yard space, in Providence’s must-have Armory District? This fantastic, move-in ready cottage has it all. Built circa 1850, this Greek Revival was completely rehabbed by the award-winning Armory Revival company in 2012, including a high-efficiency, energy efficient boiler with on-demand hot water. The huge, open-plan first floor boasts: a large, sunny living room; a dining room with sweet built-ins; and an incredibly spacious kitchen with butcher-block counters, newer appliances, and French doors that open onto a lovely back deck, overlooking a fab, fenced backyard. The first floor also features an entry mud room and a generous half bath. Upstairs, you’ll find a light-filled full bath with a skylight, and two great bedrooms -- including a master with vaulted ceilings, a skylight, and exposed beams. Updated mechanicals, hardwoods throughout, and tons of basement storage space make this gem a no-brainer. Nearby Dexter Park and the magical Cranston Street Armory, with its busy farmers market, is just down the street -- as are all of the West Side’s incredible restaurants, shops, and night spots. Easy access to 95, Routes 10 & 6, and Providence’s train station makes commuting, or skipping off to the beach, a breeze.
Providence, largely composed of the Downcity area, is a stone’s throw away from the East side, with the calming Providence River as the border between the two. Known as “The Renaissance City” in the 90s, Providence began to thrive anew in the past decades, and has not stopped since.
