Built in 1885, on The East Side of Providence, Rhode Island, the Nicholas B. Young House is a stately Queen Anne Victorian boasting the finest features of this classic architectural style, including a slate roof, dentilled cornices, decorative shingles, and a wonderful combination of peaks and arches.
A beautifully constructed covered porch welcomes you at the front of the home, offering a peaceful outdoor sitting area. The intricately hand carved door by the main entrance opens to a cozy front vestibule guiding you into a gracious foyer. This area contains a unique wraparound bow window seat and abounds with original period details found throughout the home, including exquisite moldings, inlaid parquet floors, and an ornate ceiling medallion.
The living room is flooded with natural light from a pair of bay windows and connects to an elegant dining room suitable for most any dinner event. Both of these rooms are complemented by wood burning fireplaces and are equipped with pocket doors which can be closed to produce a more intimate atmosphere. A pair of large wooden doors open to the family room, featuring custom built-ins and a wall of bright windows to create an inviting space.
The hall off the dining room supplies a half bath and leads to a spacious eat-in kitchen recently updated with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, tile backsplash, and recessed lighting.
The main staircase is a brilliant work of craftsmanship with finely detailed posts and balusters leading past stunning stained glass windows up to the second floor. This level is highlighted by a private owner’s suite containing a beautiful wood burning fireplace and an expansive full bath with double sinks, a glass door shower, and a wall of built-in drawers and cabinets for clothing. Also included on the second floor are a pair of additional bedrooms, a full bath, and a walk-in closet.
The third floor supplies five more bedrooms, providing a wealth of space which could be utilized to include a home office, fitness center, or rec room.
Stepping outside, the grounds have been meticulously maintained and offer a lush fenced-yard as well as a rear flagstone patio with a relaxing hot tub for outdoor entertaining.
Centrally located in the historic district of College Hill, this property is within walking distance of the shops, boutiques, and restaurants of both Wayland Square and Thayer Street. The home is also within close proximity of an array of educational facilities, including Moses Brown, The Wheeler School, The Lincoln School, Brown University, and the Rhode Island School of Design. Just a mile to Downtown Providence, commuting to the rest of the state and nearby Massachusetts is simplified with convenient access to the Amtrak Train Station and the major interstates.
