New to Market: $250,000 to $300,000 Homes in RI
From a waterfront Warren cottage to a well-preserved Elmwood two-family, here's what's new in Rhode Island real estate.
Belcher’s Cove Beauty, $292,000
That’s it; we’re moving to Warren. This sweet three-bedroom house, built in 1917, sits right on the waterfront, with a big rolling lawn down to the cove and a huge back deck with built-in seating. The storybook tree with tire swing seals the deal, as do the period-appropriate details inside (think: claw foot tub; original hardwoods). Three beds, two baths; 1,447 square feet. More info here.
Dunn’s Corner Cabin, $295,000
This ’80s ranch in Westerly is surprisingly contemporary on the inside, with an open floor plan and great wood floors. We love a good wood stove, too. The kitchen could use some updating, but the location — so close to the bustle of Dunn’s Corner, plus area beaches too — makes up for it. Three beds, three baths; 1,867 square feet. More info here.
Sweet North Kingstown Cottage, $298,000
If you don’t mind a one-bathroom, this Wickford cottage fits the bill in every other way. It sits on the Annaquatucket River on a near-half-acre lot. The interior is in great shape, too, with a nice-sized kitchen, dining room and sun-dappled den with — are you sensing a theme? — a wood-burning stove. Three beds, one bath; 1,519 square feet. More info here.
North Elmwood Victorian, $269,900
The curb appeal here is unmatched, especially for the price. This Providence property, built at the turn of the century, has all the historical trappings: stained glass windows, gleaming wood floors, the curving staircase of your prom queen dreams. The area’s up-and-coming, too. Five beds, three-and-a-half baths; 3,534 square feet. More info here.
Two-Family in Elmhurst, $299,900
This is a comfortable option for owner-occupied living in Providence. The two apartments, each with three beds and more than 1,500 square feet of living space, offer double parlors and well-kept hardwoods. The property is within walking distance to Seven Stars Bakery and other local shops, too. Six beds, two baths; 3,138 square feet. More info here.
