The property was most recently valued by Providence assessors in fiscal year 2023 as being worth $1.71 million, according to the city’s online property tax evaluation database. Of that, $490,600 is attributed to the small amount of land that the home is built on.

Kevin Fox, a founding agent of Compass’ Providence Office, represented the seller and the buyer in this transaction. Fox said the nearly $2 million sale is a sign of the strength of the real estate market on the city’s East Side.

“This sale is a testament to the strong demand and vibrant market we are experiencing on the East Side,” Fox said. “It was a pleasure working with the sellers, whose cooperation and trust made the process seamless. I am delighted to have found the perfect new owners for this exceptional home.”

According to the warranty deed, a public record of the transaction, the home was sold by Shelley McBride, of Providence, to Alison Tovar and Thomas Serre, of East Greenwich.
