1928 Neo-Georgian Residence
Majestically situated on a private, tranquil 23,000 square foot lot, this classic 1928 Neo-Georgian residence offers every amenity. Renovated to the highest standards by the present owners, this diligently cared for home was also expanded while under renovation to include many modern-day amenities much in demand today. Award-winning architect William L. Kite, Jr. completed the design work, with Glenn Parker acting as builder on the project. Complete interior woodwork restoration was completed by Don Olson over a period of two-and-a-half years. Amid the lush mature landscaping and foundation plantings, the residence’s brick exterior speaks to the craftsmanship of the early twentieth century.
The impressive coined entrance leads you to a vestibule and beyond into an expansive entry hall with exquisite woodwork and stunning curved staircase. The Palladian window at the landing lets light flow into the space. The formal living room with marble fireplace looks out through French doors, inviting you outside onto the beautiful brick patio.
Just beyond the fireplace is the music room, with skylight surrounded by windows, giving you the feeling of a fine conservatory. The elegant formal dining room is perfect for entertaining and, with three doors, invites a lovely open flow. This leads to the exquisite family room with custom finishes, built-in electronic storage, book cases and wet bar. The kitchen and dining area are cozy and attractive, simple and elegant.
The second floor has a bright and large landing. The four bedrooms on this level are spacious and comfortable. Two of the bedrooms share a lovely updated marble bath with shower. The third bedroom has a bathroom en-suite with tub. All of these bedrooms offer attractive built-ins. The master bedroom is an oasis, with two large walk-in closets, a sitting room with fireplace, and office area.
The master bathroom with skylight brings natural light into the well-thought-out space. It is thoughtfully laid out with dual vanities, Jacuzzi tub, skylight, and wonderfully large walk-in shower. The actual bedroom space is large, bright and airy, with an amazing amount of natural light brought into the space by four dormers in the vaulted ceiling. There is a coffee station, exceptional storage behind the bed, and French doors to a wide balcony overlooking the property.
The third floor has three additional large bedrooms and full bath, again with a large common area. The lower level contains a game room, full bathroom, and maid’s room with private entrance. It also features a two-car garage, laundry area, and outstanding storage areas. This lovely home is minutes from Brown University, The Lincoln School, Wheeler School, and Moses Brown. It is located seven minutes from downtown Providence and 45 minutes from Boston. A great value!
