Providence, RI Compass sold 66 Williams St. for $6.85 million. Nelson Taylor, of Compass Providence’s Blackstone Team, represented the seller.

One of the East Side’s last remaining sizable luxury estates, this home presents the opportunity to live on almost an acre of manicured grounds atop College Hill.
