On the Market: An Enchanting Property in Providence
This College Hill mansion is an architectural marvel.
75 Prospect Street, East Side of Providence
Size: 4,947 square feet
This architectural marvel on the East Side of Providence has been a fixture on College Hill for more than a century. Built in 1859, the Italianate-style building flaunts some French Second Empire influences, including a mansard roof, narrow arched windows, and ornate cornices.
Inside, the six-bedroom residence is even more impressive. With four functioning fireplaces, 12-foot ceilings, a library, and a ballroom parlor, it’s a historical house lover’s dream home. There’s also more than 5,000 square feet of room to relax, plus an additional peaceful spot in the Zen-like garden at the rear of the property.
Believe it or not, the mansion is a relative bargain at $364 per square foot—in Boston, a home of similar grandeur might fetch upwards of $3 million.
