Designed by modernist architect Ira Rakatansky, this one-of-a-kind contemporary home on the East Side of Providence was custom built specifically for a prominent local attorney in 1986.
Entering the home, the front foyer welcomes you into an open dining room featuring rich hardwood floors stepping down to an adjoining living room with soaring ceilings and a wall of glass flooding the room with natural light. Make use of the full wet bar while entertaining guests beside the granite wood-burning fireplace, or step outside to enjoy the fresh air and host company out on the patio.
Just off the open living and dining areas is an expansive sunny cook’s kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances, sleek white cabinetry, and a combination of granite and stainless counters. The bright breakfast area is perfect for casual dining and offers convenient access to the deck and fenced-in yard.
Completing the main level is a generous first floor bedroom, which can also be used as a family room or study, as well as a full bath and a large laundry room with a wash sink and terrific storage.
Upstairs, the second floor showcases a luxurious master suite featuring a pair of walk-in closets with excellent built-ins, a remodeled bath with a dual sink vanity, whirlpool, and new separate stall shower. This exceptional master suite has walkout access to its own private deck overlooking the magnificent yard with gorgeous perennial plantings. Also included on the second level are three more bedrooms, each one with its own unique shape, and an outstanding recently redone family bath.
This custom designed home also offers an attached two car garage leading to a nicely finished lower level recreation room, a powder room, a utility room with impressive mechanicals, and plenty of storage space.
The Grotto area is one of the East Side’s most sought after neighborhoods, and is conveniently located within walking distance of the Blackstone Boulevard Path and several local parks. Just a few blocks from the nearby Lincoln School, the home is also less than a mile from all the shops, boutiques, and cafes of Wayland Square. Enjoy all the nightlife, entertainment venues, and shopping opportunities of Downtown Providence, while easy access to the interstate and train station simplify travel throughout the state and nearby Massachusetts.
