Historic elegance in the heart of College Hill, this colonial revival was originally a single-family home built in 1894 for a leather goods craftsman and an opera singer. Converted in the 1940s-50s to a two-unit home, it could easily be converted back. With three large bedrooms, the front owner’s unit features high ceilings, breathtaking carpentry detail, five fireplaces, and beautifully restored hardwoods. A welcoming entry foyer and sunroom off the kitchen are just two of the uniquely inviting spaces in this home. The second unit is recently renewed with refinished hardwoods and fresh paint. It contains an additional three bedrooms and would make excellent guest quarters, in-law, au pair, or additional income generator space. Additionally, 260 Bowen has a rare College Hill garage, as well as ample space for parking and an idyllic side yard and brick patio for your city garden escape. Brown University, RISD, and the shops and restaurants of Thayer Street are nearby, and you’re a short distance to the train station for a Boston commute. Welcome to easy living on the East Side of Providence.

This historic “Charles Seabury Cottage” is located on approximately 1.5 acres and offers westerly views of the Sakonnet Passage and the Tiverton Basin. This farmhouse has the period charm with many modern updates. The side entrance invites you into the remodeled kitchen with chef’s appliances, custom-built white cabinets, and marble countertops. A butler’s pantry with plenty of storage leads you to a generously sized dining room with detailed moldings, an arched door and plenty of natural sunlight from the newer oversized windows. A set of glass French doors leads you to either an inviting sunroom with transient windows or to the formal living room with a traditional fireplace, a detailed mantle with built-in bookshelves. A family room is tucked away for cozy winter nights by the gas fireplace surrounded by floor-to-ceiling built white cabinets. Off this room is a full bathroom and laundry room. A traditional open staircase leads you to the second floor that has 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms and some generous closet space. If you have dreamed of space for your guest to stay or for your very own home office, this newly remodeled guest cottage is calling your name. It has wide plank pine floors, a pellet stove for those cold winter days/nights, built-in cabinets around the mantle, “kitchen” sink, a full bathroom with a skylight and a spiral staircase that leads up to a sleeping loft. The 2-story barn is ready to be transformed into whatever you can imagine.
