Residential Properties Ltd. is proud to announce the sale of 15 Bayside Avenue in Warwick for $1,100,000 on October 28. Meredyth Church of RPL’s Providence office represented both sides of the transaction.

Known as the George E. Boyden House and Carriage House, 15 Bayside Avenue is a two-and-a-half story turn of the century Queen Victorian on the waterfront in the desirable Pawtuxet neighborhood.

The home was one of the first buildings constructed in the Bayview Avenue area c. 1895, and was originally built as a summer home for George E. Boyden, Treasurer of the Vesta Knitting Mills. The home was later owned between 1903-1911 by Alfred B. Pritkin, President of A.B. Pritkin Machinery Co, and was subsequently sold to Gottlieb W. Wildprett, a partner in Wildprett &  Saacke, jewelry manufacturers.

Meredyth Church has been a real estate professional since graduating college. She returned to her native state of Rhode Island in 1983, and focused her work on high-end luxury condominiums and home sales. Among her many qualifications, Church is a certified Historic Home Specialist and is a member of the Greater Providence Board of Realtors.

This Saturday, November 5, the Woonsocket Museum of Work and Culture is hosting the Driftwood II — Love, Light, Hope Fundraiser from 6-9pm, benefitting the Rhode Island Alzheimer’s Association.

RPL’s own Sandy Soares of our Cumberland office is part of the planning committee for the event.  The cause is near and dear to Soares’ heart, as her own godfather passed recently after a 10 year struggle with the disease.
There are 5 million Americans currently suffering from Alzheimer’s, with someone being diagnosed every 72 seconds. Soares notes that by 2050, Alzheimer’s is expected to be the leading cause of death in America.

While there is presently no cure, scientists believe one will be discovered in the next 10 years.

You can help fund this important research by joining Soares for an evening of art, music, dance and food. There will be an art exhibit by artist Paul Cote in addition to music by Antonio Forte, a performance by the State Ballet of RI, portrait sketching and more. Food will be provided by Julian’s Restaurant.

Tickets are $50 each and can be purchased at DriftwoodII.brownpapertickets.com.
