CRANSTON – Built next to Narragansett Bay in 1894, a 4,800-square-foot single-family home in the city’s Edgewood neighborhood recently sold for $2.8 million, according to Churchill & Banks Cos. LLC.

The sale of 76 Seaview Ave. was the highest sale in Cranston since May of 2022, according to the real estate company, citing the Rhode Island Statewide Multiple Listing Service.

The nearly three-story home contains five bedrooms, three full bathrooms and one half-bathroom, according to Churchill & Banks. The home comes with a 0.31-acre lot, the company said.

The home also comes with a two-car garage, a full gym and water views from every room, the real estate firm said. The garage features an upstairs with a finished loft space with the potential to become a guest house or great room, Churchill & Banks said.
