This adorable 1854 home in Providence, Rhode Island, has been updated for modern living without losing any of its period charms. Located in the neighborhood of Lower Hope, the historic 1,352-square-foot home includes two bedrooms and two baths over three cozy floors, one of which comprises a new garden level suite.

With massive curb appeal characterized by a wooden frame trimmed with green and red details and a motif of anchors, the petite residence incorporates the vibrancy of its exterior in its interiors as well.

A cozy living area, for instance, opens onto a red-and-green kitchen with paneling on the main floor, where there’s also a formal dining room, painted marigold.

Hardwood floors, exposed beams, and vaulted ceilings on the third floor round out some of the original architectural elements.

Outside, a mahogany deck and a “secret city garden” offer a bit of natural respite from the hustle and bustle beyond. The home at 111 Hope Street is listed at $469,000.
