The house still has some really beautiful original features from the early 1900's period in which it was built, while also providing the conveniences of recent updates. I do have mature family-oriented tenants. Occasionally you can hear a little bit of walking on the floorboards above or below and I provide my guests with access to earplugs if needed. The place is wonderfully warm in the winters. Two brand new air conditioners are installed to keep guests cool and comfortable in the summer.

The house is in one of the safest and quietest neighborhoods in Providence, yet is just blocks away from the most desirable districts and attractions on College Hill including Brown University, RISD, Wayland Square, Blackstone Blvd, Fox Point, Wickenden, St, Thayer Street, and downtown. Known to locals but (unbenownst to many visitors from out of town) there are safe and unsafe areas of Providence. The other side of I-95 (west of College Hill) can be a bit dicier. You can't get safer, quieter, or more central to everything that is Providence than where this apt is located.
At Wayland Square you will find Starbucks, Minerva Pizza, Alex and Ani, Books On The Square, Teas and Javas, Power Yoga, and many more shops and restaurants.
Numerous cafes, restaurants, and shops are located along Thayer Street, adjoining Brown University at Veteran's Gate, and along Wickenden Street, and South Water Street. Both streets are home to numerous small and independent shops, though Thayer Street has a few chain stores. Brown University's bookstore is located on Thayer. A notable Thayer Street landmark is the Avon Cinema which dates back to the early twentieth century. Wayland Square is another popular shopping and dining area, located at the intersection of Wayland Ave. and Angell St.
Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design (RISD)
Both colleges are just blocks from the apt. Brown University's facilities include the Main Green, the Rockefeller Library, the Pembroke Campus, and the School of Medicine. Many of the Rhode Island School of Design's buildings are along the slope of College Hill. The RISD Museum is located on Benefit Street.
Wickenden has many quaint antique shops, clothing stores, Coffee Exchange, Brickaway (which serves great breakfasts), and Fellini's Pizzeria the best pizza in Providence!
