61 Cooke Street is one of the most beautiful houses on the East Side of Providence, located in a quiet neighborhood that is both elegant and convenient. This splendid example of Gilded Age architecture was built in 1902.
In 2009, the current owners confidently undertook a complete restoration of the building. They increased the home’s livability with a modern kitchen and a family room, and entirely new electrical, plumbing, heating, and air conditioning systems. All of this was undertaken with consideration for the original building, so that 61 Cooke Street still reads like a textbook of superb architectural details.
If that’s not enough, this amazing property also includes an Italianate carriage house, built in 1851, and completely restored in 2010. The ground floor is a nine-foot-high garage of nearly 1,100 square feet, with room for 6 vehicles. Upstairs is a completely renovated two-bedroom apartment, with an open floor plan, a spa bath, and full kitchen. The carriage house is fully modern with central air conditioning and high efficiency systems throughout.
While 61 Cooke Street exudes charm and sophistication, its inspired renovation gives it a day-to-day livability that can be hard to find in an historic property. Just beyond the house is all the energy and convenience that Providence has to offer. It's within walking distance to an exuberant dining and food culture, celebrated institutions of higher education, superb museums, live entertainment, and shopping.
