Location: Providence, R.I.
Price: $2,725,000
The Skinny: Modernism is likely not Topic A of discussion when the subject of Providence residential architecture comes up at parties (and don't pretend that it doesn't) but sitting high atop College Hill is at least one remarkable example of stone-cold Brutalism in the "Creative Capital." Designed in 1974 by architectural firm Huygens & Tappe, which spread Brick Brutalism far and wide across New England, the home takes advantage of its absolutely stellar siting by serving up incredible views of the city skyline, with an open floor plan that allows unimpeded views through its west-facing, floor-to-ceiling windows. The upper-level public living spaces and the master bedroom are connected to the lower residential areas by a curving staircase and waterfall, with the lower level opening out onto a pool deck and the heavily landscaped garden terrace. The kitchen has recently been redone with all new Birdseye Maple cabinets, and there is also a truly impressive wet bar, all of which is asking $2.725M.
