Originally built in 1919, the Earl R. Davis House is a delightful stucco Colonial with a European flair, ideally located on a beautiful quarter acre lot near College Hill and the Moses Brown School.
Stepping up the front walk, past the lovely mature landscaping which provides great privacy, the covered main entrance welcomes you into a classic entry hall showcasing an elegant staircase and displaying the original hardwood floors and wonderful period details found throughout the home.
The spacious living room with its handsome wood-burning fireplace and the adjoining formal dining room are both surrounded by multiple sets of French doors providing great light and peaceful views of the outside greenery.
Featuring custom maple cabinetry and sleek stainless steel countertops, the impressive cook’s kitchen includes a sunny breakfast area, while also flowing into a cozy family room addition.
Designed for entertaining, almost every room on the main floor provides French door access to an array of outdoor spaces. Sit on the charming brick patio and relax to the tranquil sounds of the koi pond or enjoy al fresco dining on the bluestone terrace, overlooking the expansive private yard with its lovely English gardens and bordered by mature plantings.
Back inside, a convenient office and a stylish powder room complete the 1st floor.
Going upstairs, the 2nd floor features a large master suite with its own private dressing room and marble ensuite bath including a separate shower and soaking tub. There are also two other generous bedrooms, including one currently arranged as a second family room, another full bath, and a convenient 2nd floor laundry room with a cedar closet on this level.
The 3rd floor offers three more bedrooms and a full bath, while the lower level includes a finished beadboard mudroom with access to the handy integral three-car garage.
Set on the edge of College Hill, the home’s ideal location offers an urban feel with close proximity to surrounding private schools. Walk to all the shops, boutiques, and cafes of Wayland Square or visit the many dining opportunities along both Hope and Thayer Streets. Just two miles from all the entertainment, shopping, and business opportunities of Downtown Providence, this property also provides excellent access to the interstate and train station for further travel.
