Property Description

The 1880 Pell Matteson House is a smart combination of period details and sophisticated Townhouse living on desirable College Hill. This historic home, once host to President Obama, showcases original 1880 hardwood floors throughout. A double-parlor living room features a fireplace, crisp crown molding, and a large bow window flooding the area with natural light. The spacious dining room with butler’s pantry leads to a sleek, updated chef’s kitchen with stone counters, stainless steel appliances, and walkout access to a fenced city garden. Ascend the magnificent front staircase or the convenient back staircase to the second floor, offering a full mahogany library with a custom Damascus fixture. Two hidden doors add security/storage locations and secret passage to the primary bedroom featuring a large walk-in closet. The spa-like, marble full bath lends a soaking tub and roomy walk-in shower. An additional bedroom features breezy vistas over the neighboring fields. Stairs to the third floor lead to 4 more lovely bedrooms and a full bath. Repainted exteriors and interiors, along with custom shutters throughout, make this a winning mix of timeless style and contemporary updates. Gallery lighting and extra-high ceilings transform the basement into art gallery or expansive multipurpose space. Adjacency to Thayer and Hope Streets allows for walking to restaurants, boutiques, and cafes. Enjoy a quick walk to Brown and RISD or a 15-minute stroll to downtown and the commuter rail.
