Property Description

Welcome to 657 Highland Ave, also known, as the "THE RISING SUN", reported to be one of the most "ICONIC" homes in Fall River. Located on over 1/2 acre lot in the prestigious Neighborhood of the Highlands. It offers 6-8 bedrooms, a Tea room, inground pool and a 2nd and 3rd floor deck off the bedrooms. The famed center staircase is illuminated by a large 20 x 15 skylight. The ceilings are tongue and groove and completely different in every room (a Japanese method called Feng Shui to bring harmony to the home). The interior of the house has over 20 species of wood through out. The famed Architect Ralph Adams Cram has been on the cover of Time magazine 4 times and has also designed the Fall River public library and St Georges Chapel in Middle Town RI) this authentic Pagoda Home was built without any nails (known as KUMIKI) which is why the solid 125yr walnut front doors still work perfectly, The Rising Sun interior has been argued to have started the ARTS and Crafts movement.
