An East Providence home with room to breathe


This property at 151 Dover Avenue in East Providence may seem at first glance to be a not-uncommon typical family home, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms at just under 1,800 square feet. But the exceptional lot size—about a third of an acre—is what really makes this property stand out from the crowd in a town that is otherwise relatively, well, crowded.

East Providence is essentially city living, but it provides a nearby, affordable alternative to living (and paying taxes!) in Providence. With several parks, the East Bay Bike Path, top-flight golf courses, and easy access to Interstate 95 and the Attleboro Amtrak/MBTA station, East Providence enjoys all the conveniences of urban living, while still allowing for a little elbow room.

The Dover Avenue home is young, with an open and light-filled floor plan that makes it ideal for entertaining. The Kent Heights neighborhood is among the city's best, and the property is well within walking distance to several good schools, both public and private, as well as park space and recreational fields.

Inside features elegant stonework, an oversized kitchen and master suite, new appliances including a new wood-burning stove, and abundant closet space. If you are looking for a home is East Providence, this is one not to be missed.
