Historic Home Providence RI Close to Brown University and RISD

WE ARE HOPING FOR A SPRING SEMESTER RENTAL!!!!! Charming two bedroom, National Register Historic Home. About one and a half miles from Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design. Two bedrooms, one full and one half bath. Off street parking for two cars. New washer/dryer. Lovely neighborhood with many good restaurants, CVS, banks, bus stop, library, nice retail shops, liquor store and bakery only two blocks away.

There are two working fireplaces and a beehive oven. The patio area, the back of house, and side are fenced in. We will allow a pet. There is a work area attached to house which provides extra storage space, and an extra refrigerator. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave oven, garbage disposal, cook top, and under counter oven.

There is an efficiency apartment attached to the side/back of house. You very seldom realize that someone is there. The apartment has its' own parking on the other side of the property.

The home was part of a large farm when it was built in 1793. Miraculously the house has survived 226 years. We have tried to keep the house decor historically accurate while making sure it is a comfortable, cozy home! We hope to find someone who will take care and love the house as much as we do.

*We will hire a snow removal company at our expense. We will be happy to have firewood delivered at renters expense.

About Me
I am a retired public school teacher. Presently I work at Old Sturbridge Village giving craft demonstrations and was a Craftsperson in Residence. I am very involved with Colonial Rhode Island history. I have been selling my floor cloths (please see web page) at various craft shows such as Historic New England's show and will be in the Fine Furnishings Show this Fall. Besides our 1793 National Register home here in Providence, my husband and I also own a fishing lodge in Texas.
