East of Providence, the 1905-built Rumford Library was taken on as a passion project, and renovated to a single-family home and popular Airbnb rental. With a solid brick exterior and the ‘Rumford Library’ sign still above the entrance, the home was awarded the 2015 Rhody Award for Historical Preservation.

Newly listed, the library is a three-bedroom home with a polished and open layout. In the living room, large windows and built-in shelving surround the space, and a brick fireplace is the focal point. The kitchen features similar design details, with lattice-paned, glass front cabinetry and stainless steel appliances completing the look. Vivid emerald paint, crisp white woodwork, and hardwood floors contrast beautifully in both rooms. Additional highlights of the home include exposed-brick walls and a spacious dining room.
