About This 1737 Cushing House In Providence Rhode Island
Built in 1737, Cushing House is an extraordinary example of colonial New England architecture. Located between Benefit Street and North Main, this beautifully preserved home is sited with stellar views of the Capitol and First Baptist Church. Across from Roger Williams National Park, and just blocks away from conveniences and amenities, the neighborhood is urban and romantic.
This striking post & beam home has undergone a full restoration, including new cedar-shingle roof, period-appropriate lighting, chimneys lined and capped with copper. All appliances have been replaced, and the eat-in kitchen features soapstone counters, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and built-in wine cooler. Utilities have been mindfully modernized, including new Viessman boiler, all new wiring, and security system.
Original and beautifully crafted architectural details include wide-plank floors, enormous hearth fireplaces, and exposed beams. Upper floors have been meticulously updated and comprise two en suites, and a loft bedroom/office on the third floor. The property has been officially surveyed, and professional landscape design done, with a semi-circle driveway, and elegant walkways to front and rear entrances. Finishes and workmanship have been done at the highest level of quality, and in compliance with Providence Preservation Society guidelines.
This is a rare opportunity to own a fastidiously restored, special antique home in a dynamic and very central location in Providence’s College Hill!
