The Property

The William C. Benedict house, circa 1885, is located in the Stimson Avenue Historic District and is just steps the private schools and universities. The front porch welcomes you into the delightful entry hall with rich parquet floors. The wood floors continue into the living and dining rooms, each with decorative raised paneling, crown molding and abundant natural light that floods the space through oversized windows.

At the back of the house is the fully equipped chef’s kitchen with stainless appliances, a professional grade range, and stone topped counters with a center island. The adjacent family room with a gas fireplace is the perfect backdrop for entertaining family and friends. A library with built in bookshelves and a fire place plus a convenient powder room completes the first level. Upstairs the primary bedroom suite has elegant molding, a fireplace and an ensuite spa style bath. Two additional bedrooms, two full baths and an home office provides ample space for families of all shapes and sizes. The third level has two bedrooms, a study, a family room area and another full bath plus ample storage space with built-ins. There is a second story porch that overlooks the back yard with a blue stone patio, raised planting beds and a two car garage. The prime location is within walking distance to Brown, RISD, the restaurants and shops on Thayer and Ives Streets, as well as Wayland Square. This home is a College Hill delight.
