11 West View Avenue, located in the verdant Fruit Hill neighborhood of North Providence, is a very special home indeed. Built in 1959 at the crest of a hill, this mid-century modern gem, known as the Caldarone House , was designed by Ira Rakatansky, Rhode Island's most famous architect from the era. The home has been lovingly preserved by purists over the generations and still boasts most of the original elements. The basics: the home is single-level, with a finished lower level; the home is 3 beds and 2 full baths with 2,251 sqft above grade; 1,400 sqft of finished basement below grade; the home has central AC; there is a two-car heated garage; and the lot is .82 of an acre. Walk in the front door to an open expanse, vaulted ceilings and light from every direction. Your eyes will be drawn to accents, from bursts of color to stained glass to glass partitions to accent walls to design elements like the 8-foot doors and the curio/china cabinet on casters that acts like a moveable wall. On the back side of the house are the spacious laundry room and kitchen that opens to a cantilevered family room complete with fireplace. The railing to the downstairs is artistic welded-pipe leading to recreation room and wet bar with 8-foot ceiling height. The spacious outdoors offers a porch, stone-walled driveway and pebble-stone front entry perfect for sculptures. Entertainer's dream? Yes, this is truly the affordable showpiece home you have been looking for.
