Five miles north of Providence, this four-story former mill building is unassuming from the outside. Take the elevator up to the top, though, and find this loft which exudes coolness from the moment you step inside. Original timber beams and oak factory floors run along the long, open unit, which is end-capped by an exposed brick wall and oversized windows.

The kitchen, furnished with butcher block counters, a stainless steel backsplash, and cantilevered shelving, occupies the first section of the loft’s length. Next, a dining area underneath a chic multi-light pendant fixture borders a spacious living area—currently divided into a sectional and TV lounge and a bright play zone for kids. Just off that space, a pair of pocket doors tucks into a reclaimed wood partition wall to reveal one of the home’s three bedrooms. Though almost entirely open, the 1,900 square feet are rife with hidden treasures of details, such as overhead storage above the closet in one bedroom, or sleek concrete floors in the bathroom. And with 120 years of history under its belt, the building has some gems of its own. For example, a large scale still sits up on the top floor—right next to the shared roof deck—used to measure out swaths of fabric back when the residence was a textile mill.
