Built in 1891, the Mary Dexter Hill House is an elegant Colonial with a two-car garage set on a beautifully landscaped corner lot in the desirable College Hill neighborhood. A graceful walkway leads to the portico entrance of this lovely home that seamlessly blends modern conveniences with historic charm.
The entry hall, decorated with an inlay hardwood design and a marvelous central staircase that connects all three floors of the home fills each floor with natural light. The abutting front-to-back living room with a wood-burning fireplace has enough space to host all social occasions. Fireplaces adorn both the dining room and library creating sumptuous atmospheres in both rooms. The magnificent chef’s kitchen features extensive stone countertops, top of the line appliances and a sunny dining area with walkout access. Completing the main level are a powder room and a family room that is set off the kitchen and is illuminated by a wall of windows that face the private rear yard.
Dine on the expansive deck or relax in the idyllic yard with mature plantings that create a city oasis.
On the second level, is an incredible master suite with a private marble bath with a spa shower. Two more generous bedrooms, each with an ensuite bath, and a home office are also on the floor.
The third floor has three additional bedrooms, a rec room, and a full bath with a soaking tub and shower.
This fantastic location allows for sophisticated in-town living and is steps away from the popular local stores that line Thayer Street. Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design make their homes nearby along with a variety of museums and parks. Downtown Providence is minutes away and home to a convenient commuter rail along with acclaimed cultural and dining experiences, including the spectacular Waterfire.
