The Property

Located in the College Hill Historic District of the East Side of Providence, 38 Keene Street is a special circa 1890 Stick-style Victorian home with a Chinoise flair and Shinto-like front door etchings. The home is 3 floors of living space (not including the cellar), encompassing 4900 sqft, 6 bedrooms, and 4.5 baths: grand in every respect with high ceilings and windows and doors to match. The millwork in the front vestibule is intricate. The wallpaper in the entry is William Morris and the hardwood floors are inlaid.

Immediately to the right and left are parlors, both with pocket doors and fireplaces with craftsman mantels. Also on this floor are spacious a dining room, lavette, and kitchen with Viking range. An extravagantly detailed mahogany stairwell leads up to the second floor, which consists of a primary suite, plus three other bedrooms and a bath. Both bathrooms have been recently updated. The stair continues to the third floor, where there are two more bedrooms, one full bath, and an office. But perhaps the coolest room in the home is the turret—a 150 sqft 4th-floor room perfect for an art studio or writer’s retreat. All can be accessed via a back stairwell with a private side door. On the exterior, the shingle work is gorgeous. The home is completed by a back deck off the kitchen, a fenced yard, and two-car garage
