Originally built circa 1895, the James Richardson House is a gorgeous Colonial Revival set on the East Side of Providence straddling the historic College Hill and Wayland Square neighborhoods. All three floors of this incredible home are filled with period details, including gleaming hardwood floors, original fireplaces, and custom millwork. Recent modern updates beautifully compliment the original layout and aesthetic.
The elegant entryway with pairs of Doric columns heads into a classic front foyer that leads into spacious living and dining spaces for every occasion. The large chef’s kitchen has been meticulously designed with stainless steel appliances, custom cabinetry and countertops with bar seating, and a breakfast area. The adjoining sitting area steps down to the sunroom where a pair of French doors leads out to a magnificent brick terrace, ideal for garden parties and al fresco dining.
The two upper levels of the home feature multiple generous suites, including the third floor master bedroom with an ensuite bath, fireplace, and a private dressing room. This level also provides a second floor family room, laundry room, and versatile rooms to fit any additional needs.
This home’s great location allows you to explore everything the East Side has to offer, including the great shops and dining options along Thayer Street and Wayland Square, and both Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design. Visit local parks including India Point Park set right on the water. Take advantage of easy highway access and all of the renowned theaters and restaurants of Downtown Providence.
