98 Columbia Avenue


98 Columbia Avenue is located in Edgewood, a seaside neighborhood in Cranston, RI.

Built in 1914 and renovated in the 21st century, this enduring Shingle Style home sits back on a quarter acre lot. Its front porch stretches the full width of the house and is blessed with shade from the sun and lighting for evening comfort.

Interior and exterior details echo the influences of this endearing style: artistic hand wrought glass and abundant woodwork were intended to make every day beautiful, while holding its right-sized sensibility amid America’s turn of the century Gilded Age.

The kitchen is pretty snappy. Great appliances, good working spaces, lots of great cabinetry and lighting. A breakfast bar and open floor plan can be used as the informal dining area. French doors open to a big deck that spills out into a fenced yard and sunlight.

Upstairs are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. The Master Bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a separate tub for soaking and a tiled shower. And 2 bedrooms flank the 2nd bathroom. A single bedroom and some storage are in the attic.

The basement has great finished space that can be used as a playroom or office. Heating is handled by a recent Weill-McLain boiler. A 74 gallon hot water tank will keep up with many showers.

The garage is being used as a recording studio and has finished walls, heat, and a carpeted floor. Nevertheless, it can easily be returned to its original purpose as a 2 car garage. The Seller will accommodate such a request.

Columbia Avenue is a gracious street, lined with large old homes on large lots, and owners deserve to be proud of its elegant design.

Edgewood is distinguished by its proximity to Narragansett Bay. This home is just a couple of blocks from the ocean. It’s also a short ride (8 minutes) to Providence. Local markets, restaurants, merchants are convenient and abundant. You won’t feel like you’re buried in the ‘burbs or constantly eyeing strip malls as you come home.

It’s a nice place to call Home.
