Built in 1925, the Charles A. Russell House is a magnificent brick Georgian Revival set upon a beautiful park-like setting overlooking the river. The home was completely renovated in 2007 and offers over 6,300 square feet of living space, including four bedrooms with 5 full and 2 half baths.
The elliptical Tuscan portico entrance and front vestibule welcome you into a gracious foyer accented with rich hardwood floors and original millwork, while also offering access to a guest powder room.
To the right is a quiet study with gorgeous wood paneled walls, while the spacious living room to the left features a large central fireplace and wide crown molding.
The formal dining room is flooded with natural light from an oversized bow window, and connects to a superb eat-in kitchen showcasing marble countertops, custom cabinetry, and a center island with cooktop and bar seating. This beautifully appointed kitchen flows into an open sitting room and casual dining area, while also stepping out to a blue stone terrace with a built-in grille station.
The hall off the kitchen provides a half bath and leads to a convenient mud room with walkout access to the large three-car garage.
The home’s gorgeous staircase with intricately carved posts and balusters ascends to the sleeping quarters on the second floor. The generous master suite affords scenic water views and includes its own private office. The walk-in closet allows for plenty of storage, while the changing area leads into an en suite bath with dual marble vanity, jetted whirlpool tub, and glass enclosed shower.
Completing the second floor are three more large bedrooms, each offering their own private full bath.
Additional living space is available on the finished lower level, including a spacious family room and rec area, a fitness center, full bath with sauna, and a bonus room.
Located in the Grotto area on the East Side of Providence, the home is just a short walk to scenic Blackstone Park, as well as the jogging path along the boulevard, and the nearby Narragansett Boat Club. Less than half a mile from the Lincoln School, this property is also in close proximity to the campuses of both Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design. Visit the collection of boutiques and local shops at nearby Wayland Square, or enjoy a night out at one of the many theatres and entertainment venues of Downtown Providence. In addition to all the local amenities this area provides, convenient access to the train station and interstate allow for easy travel throughout Rhode Island and nearby Massachusetts.
