Sophisticated, elegant and gracious best describes the Federal/Greek Revival style 'John Earle & Joseph Simmons House' ca. 1840. The home has a fabulous layout, detailed woodwork, four fireplaces, a great master suite plus a lovely back porch overlooking a beautifully landscaped rear garden boasting RI's oldest and largest Wisteria vine. One of those rare homes that elicits the
response: "oh, I know THAT house!!", the property has been beautifully maintained with many of its classic features intact. Conveniently located in the Power Street/Cooke Street Historic District, the home is equidistant between Wayland Square, Fox Point and College Hill which means an easy walk to much of what the East Side has to offer: Brown, RISD, Downtown, Gaspee train station plus numerous shops and restaurants.
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.
