Nearly two months after General Treasurer Gina Raimondo put her Elmgrove Avenue home on the market, Congressman David Cicilline has also decided to move off one of the most prominent streets on Providence’s East Side.

The second-term Democrat is selling his spacious five-bedroom, 3.5 bath home in favor of a condo just around the corner on Blackstone Boulevard, Cicilline spokesman Richard Luchette told

The asking price: $849,000.

The 2,727-square-foot classic brick Georgian colonial was built in 1927 and comes equipped with a two-car garage, an updated cook’s kitchen and central air, according to the listing from Residential Properties. Other amenities include a dishwasher, garbage disposal, washer and dryer.

According to the listing, Cicilline paid $12,934 in property taxes on the house in 2012. But that figure would increase by just over $800 to $13,767, assuming Providence Mayor Angel Taveras’s proposed budget is approved by the City Council and the new owner lives in the house. The home is valued at $706,000, according to city property records.

Earlier this year, the Providence Journal’s Kathy Gregg reported that Raimondo listed her 525 Elmgrove Avenue home after purchasing a new house on Morris Avenue. But all hope is not lost for the affluent neighborhood. U.S. District Court Judge Jack McConnell Jr. and his wife appear perfectly content staying put in their $1.8 million home on the same street.
