In this much-admired cottage-style house, the well-maintained character of the exterior is matched by the craftsmanship of the spacious interior.
The front hall leads to an extended open-plan, front-to-back living area, a beamed ceiling with skylights, and a large multi-paned window offering a view of the garden. A sunken parlor, fitted with floor-to-ceiling cabinetry and window seats, is perfect for intimate fireside evenings.
The farmhouse-style eat-in kitchen includes vintage features: glass-paned cupboards; a Hoosier cabinet; retro-style tin ceiling; and raised booth seating for four.
One of the three second floor bedrooms is attached to a small balcony. The third floor bedroom has an en-suite bathroom containing a claw-footed tub and a skylight.
Attractive, low-maintenance perennial gardens surround the house. A hidden Zen-like garden with a fountain and bench provides access to a summer house that can be used as a quiet retreat, a child’s playhouse, a special place for a restful nap in a hammock, or a three-season studio.
This well-cared-for property features new windows and refinished oak floors throughout, updated with central air conditioning, and built-in space-saving storage solutions.
Easy access to major roadways, conveniently close to Universities, private & public schools, and downtown restaurants and shops. A compelling value in a superb location!.
The East Side is steeped in old New England charm with its striking, historic architecture and beautiful stone and brick sidewalks. Three of the state’s more prominent prep schools as well as Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design are located on the East Side.
