Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty Lists Exceptional East Side Estate

Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty has listed an incredible East Side of Providence estate. One of the capital city’s finest luxury properties located on a private manicured 2.6-acre lot, 460 Rochambeau Avenue is on the market for an asking price of $7,900,000. Heidi Farmer, Sales Associate, and Ben Scungio, Regional Manager, are representing the seller.

Built in 1915, was designed by Eliezer B Homer for Rhode Island School of Design instructor William Brigham and his wife, Clara. A rare offering, the property is the last privately owned estate on the East Side of Providence. With two separate quarters, a 9,000 square foot main home, and a 1,975 carriage house with a full kitchen and one and one-half bathrooms, the residence is perfectly situated for modern lifestyle trends such as remote work or multigenerational spaces.

Located on a beautiful private corner lot on Blackstone Boulevard, this magnificent property offers an abundance of living and working spaces, creating many possibilities and solutions for prospective owners. The carriage home and gallery are accessible via separate entrance into the property. The gallery, at over 1,700 square feet, boasts enough space to hold events safely.

Heidi Farmer says, “With today’s demands for a balanced live/workspace, this rare home offers it all – peace and serenity to be found right in the middle of the city.”

Prominent features include a mature tree-lined driveway behind a gate, lush greenery and gardens throughout the grounds, original architectural details, four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and three half bathrooms.

“We are proud to bring this unique opportunity to the Providence luxury market,” adds Ben Scungio. “A distinct property such as 460 Rochambeau Avenue deserves the attention a distinct luxury real estate firm can garner. Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty has the power of global reach to offer a best in class experience to our client.”
