    Description

    Rare Opportunity to own the oldest home in the College Hill Historic District - - circa 1737. Built when George Washington was just five years old! This home is wonderfully preserved having had multiple architect owners. Documented as "sturdily built, thats no exaggeration. Benjamin Cushing, the original owner, was a successful merchant/trader. You'll find fine woodwork, impressive mantles, gorgeous super-wide pine floors throughout, classic sidewinder staircases and eight-foot high ceilings - - very uncommon and desirable. Youll observe that all rooms are large with many windows for great natural light. The eat-in kitchen is huge and has a cozy working fireplace. The dining room or family room is casual with its exposed beam ceiling and massive brick fireplace. Two bedrooms on the second floor. Architect-designed master bath and dressing room with tremendous closet space. Third floor is divided in two and has a half bath. Great private work-from-home office, studio, or additional bedrooms. Central A/C, updated electrical, mechanically and structurally needs no work. The home sits on a large brick paved courtyard/patio. Has views of the RI State House and neighboring Roger Williams Natl. Memorial Park for greenspace. Next to downtown, RISD, Brown Univ, great restaurants and all the urban and cultural amenities the East Side is famous for. Walk score of 90 make this a "Walkers Paradise too. You wont find a home that's a better fit for your contemporary urban lifestyle!
