A rare opportunity to live on almost an acre of beautifully manicured grounds atop Providence’s historic College Hill. This estate offers over 11,000 square feet of gracious living on three impressively finished levels all elevated to the finest quality to enchant today’s most discerning buyer. The owners took great care in the thoughtful restoration process, enhancing what was already a magnificent home. Built in 1810 by prominent businessman John Corliss, it was then purchased in 1812 by wealthy merchant Edward Carrington upon his return from China where he served as American Consul. The estate remained in the family for 3 generations. Today, the home is one of Providence's loveliest estates with beautiful and welcoming rooms including a dramatic entrance with curved staircase, exquisite dining room with rare French wallpaper by Dufour, impressive "peacock" wallpaper made in China in the living room (the peacock became the Carrington family crest), significant 2 story office, chef's kitchen and large master suite. One will be delighted by the amount of sunlight pouring through the windows, the high ceilings, well-appointed rooms, exquisite period details and luxurious finishes. The residence is perfectly connected to the original horse stables, replete with stalls and radiant heated floors. The barn has been meticulously restored into a wonderful entertaining space with caterer's kitchen. Sauna/spa and gym to complete this one of a kind offering that is truly unprecedented.
