Would You Rather: PVD vs. Charlestown Real Estate

Would you choose the historic Providence property with city views or the white post and beam on the Charlestown waterfront?

Both properties have views. That’s about it for common ground.

The Providence Greek Revival, built in the 1800s, is perched two blocks up from Benefit Street on College Hill. Historical details abound, including black marble fireplaces, a half-turn spiral staircase, pocket doors and fancy moldings. Outside, a private yard with a Koi pond and brick patio boasts views of the city, including the State House. $1.085 million; 6 beds, 3.5 baths; 3,461 square feet. residentialproperties.com.

The Charlestown property sits at the edge of Ninigret Pond on more than an acre of land. The interior is understated — think: bamboo floors, a porcelain tile kitchen and dining area, a three-season sun room — and that’s probably an intentional move, so as not to distract from the water views. Outside, you’ll find a screened-in porch with a hot tub and an outdoor shower. $1.275 million; 3 beds, 3 baths; 2448 square feet. liladelman.com
