The Property

Tucked at the end of a in a picturesque cobblestone mews /courtyard you will find the “Charles Lippitt Coachman’s House” that was built in 185O for the coachman of textile manufacturer Charles Lippitt. This three-to-four-bedroom Greek Revival cottage has a charming side garden, accented with a curved brick wall and wrought iron gate. One of the three garages is deeded to this property and accommodates tandem parking for two. On the main level – that accesses the garden- is the dining room, kitchen, and laundry.

The exposed stone wall with its deep window wells add drama to this great room. Go upstairs and you have the living room with fireplace and den or guest bedroom and hall bath with claw foot tub. On the third floor are two to three more bedrooms, office and bath. The sensitively restored hardwood floors and walls througthout showcase the charm of this property.

Have the best of all worlds- easy access to the highway, Wickenden Street and all the shopping and restaurant opportunities of living in the heart of the East Side just off Benefit Street- yet at the end of cobbled mews called Charlesfield Court. This historic property had just been refreshed by the current owner who had a change of situation and now has it made it available for a new owner who wishes to own a one-of-a-kind piece of Providence history and make it their own. This is a unique and valuable find.
