House Lust: A Cozy East Side Family Home with a Studio and Tree House

This inviting property, which dropped $20,000 in price last month, has something for everyone in your crew.

I’ll take the tree house. The kids can have the work space/studio. It’s not as cruel as it sounds; the studio does have a nice loft, after all.

This East Side property, tucked behind Lippitt Memorial Park on Hope Street, is a young family’s dream house. And it served as such in its previous life; the current homeowners recently moved for better school opportunities in another district. (Don’t let that scare you; the charters in Providence are great, and Classical is the number two high school in the state.) From the globe lights on the porch to the putting green out back, it’s clear the family loved living here. Now, it’s someone else’s turn to enjoy the fun backyard, comfortable living spaces and nearby shops, restaurants and summertime farmers market.

Here’s your House Lust:
