140 Prospect Street: The Halsey House

The Halsey House is a beautifully kept 19th Century mansion offering stylish one, two, three bedroom and studio apartment rentals. Nestled in the historic College Hill neighborhood in Providence, leases start at $1,500, heat and hot water included.

Built in 1801 by Col. Thomas Lloyd Halsey (1751-1838), a prosperous Providence shipping merchant and French consular agent in Rhode Island during the Revolutionary War, the Halsey House is perhaps best known as the basis for the home of the title character in H.P. Lovecraft’s short novel “The Case of Charles Dexter Ward.”

The Halsey House is a 10,822-square-foot, Federal-style brick mansion. This mansion has been renovated to reflect the true elegance of the apartments using modern, high-end amenities and conveniences. Situated on a lush green acre lot, each apartment is truly unique, each with a different layout, luxury features, and meticulously preserved period details, maintaining the feel of this historic mansion. The floors vary between hardwood, pine, ceramic, and marble, while the fireplaces are made with either brick, marble, tile, stone, or wood frame mantels. The kitchens are modern and the bedrooms boast tall ceilings and large windows that offer natural light throughout the day. The Halsey House offers spacious living just minutes from I-95, I-295, I-195 and 2 minutes from the Commuter Rail. Heat and hot water are included for all units and styles.
