57 Stimson Avenue

If you ask, what are the best streets in Providence, Rhode Island, Stimson will surely be on the top of everyone’s list. On the eastern side of College Hill, this quiet and private spot is ideal located on The East Side of Providence, Rhode Island.  

Once a carriage house for one of the larger properties nearby, the building was expanded into a very comfortable, 2700 square foot  open Ranch Style home.  Influenced by the post-war modern movement of the mid twentieth century, single level living is at its finest here.

Inside, the main rooms unfold off a gracious foyer anchored by a large living room with a gas fireplace and marble surround.   Windows abound, letting in light to bathe the space.  The dining area is conveniently adjacent to the newly renovated  chef’s kitchen with its professional appliances designed in a galley style.  And there is plenty of counter space for food preparation.

A family room, which looks out to the central courtyard, continues with the open concept amplified by the use of windows along one wall and in the ceiling.  It’s a great knook to relax or enjoy enlightening conversation.  

The home also feature three generous bedrooms, each with its own bath.  The master includes a fireplace, dressing room and a sumptuous bath.  

The grounds with it two patios and mature plantings feels like your own private park.

The Stimson Avenue Historical District is located between two of the best shopping and restaurant areas on the East Side of Providence.  Thayer Street, with its influence by Brown University and RISD, is just to the west, while Wayland Square with its unique boutiques is also within walking distance just down Angell Street.  Convenience is the main word for this property since College Hill is very near the downtown business district and the hospitals. The train station is also down the hill allowing for an easy commute to Boston or a trip to New York.
