The John Truman house

Welcome to the John Truman House (1802), located just off of Benefit Street in beautiful College Hill! On the market for the first time in 60 years, this remarkable Federal-style home was lovingly restored in 1965 in collaboration with Antoinette Downing and the Providence Preservation Society.

Step through the pedimented front doorway, through a handsome entry hall, into a spacious and well-appointed first floor that offers an incredible amount of living space with an elegant flow. You’ll find two living or sitting rooms, a beautiful office with built-in bookshelves, a formal dining room, a powder room, and a kitchen that opens onto a lovely rear shaded garden.

Upstairs, find two large bedrooms, a sitting room, a bathroom, and a primary bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.

This post-and-beam gem is rife with incredible historic details throughout, including gorgeous wide-plank floors, decorative wood trim, crown moldings, and gorgeous hearths. Additional amenities include a brand-new Viessmann boiler, and a cobblestone driveway with ample off-street parking.

This incredible opportunity offers amazing proximity to Brown and RISD, the pedestrian bridge, Trader Joe’s, India Point Park, Wickenden Street, Downtown and the Jewelry District – and with easy access to highways and bike trails. __Note: this is an estate sale.
