Originally built c1814, this stunning Federal style residence is located at 2 George Street in College Hill. The home was first constructed for Eliza Ward, who was the daughter of architect Joseph Brown, one of the four famous Brown brothers and a teacher of mathematics and astronomy at Brown University. Eliza married Richard Ward, a member of the politically influential family from Newport. After the death of her husband in 1808, Eliza lived with her brother until this home’s completion in 1814. The home remained in Eliza’s family until 1892 when Marsden J. Perry, owner of the Narragansett Electric Company, moved in.
Since that time, this colonial era gem has been masterfully restored and updated for 21st century living. With original period details, Dufour wallpaper, classic millwork, professionally designed lighting, updated electrical systems, and 5 zones of heating and air conditioning, this home is the perfect blend of old world charm and modern living.
