Newport apartment description

This open air, one bedroom apartment is on the second floor of a period two family home in the heart of Newport's Yachting Village. Our guests will enjoy our newly renovated kitchen with a counter and stools as the transition to the living room, which has a sliding glass door out to the small deck with 2 chairs. The deck faces south, so the sun warms and brightens the living room and kitchen area.

The location is key to the appreciation our guests have for the apartment. Walk to the foot of our street and you are on Historic Thames Street.
Cross Thames Street to walk down to the docks of Newport Harbor. Head to the left on Thames for shops and restaurants, the International Yacht Restoration School and King Park, a wonderful picnic spot right on the harbor, especially good for catching sunsets.
Turn right on Thames and within a 5 minute walk you are at Bowen's and Bannister's Wharfs, the center of Newport's shopping and dining district. Another 5 minute walk brings you into historic Washington Square, with the movie theater and more restaurants and shops.

* Walk east to Bellevue Avenue, Cliff Walk and Easton's Beach.

* Catch a sunset sail on one of several fine yacht cruises

* Rent a bike just down the street and tour Newport

* Walk just a few blocks to tour the Gilded Age Mansions

* Go next door to see The Samuel Whitehorn Museum

With miles of bountiful beaches and trails, centuries-old homes, historic landmarks, bustling waterfronts, year-round festivals and events, and hundreds of diverse shops and eateries, Newport has been called the gem of the New England coastline.

Newport was one of the largest cities and busiest seaports in all of Colonial America. Known as the cultural heart of the city, the Old Quarter includes 18th and 19th century buildings, a collection of Colonial homes and museums. Step from the Colonial era to the famed “summer cottages” of America’s Gilded Age, perched along famed Bellevue Avenue. More than a dozen of these palatial homes, many with extraordinary gardens and grounds, have been painstakingly preserved and many are open year round.

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 1978

                              About the owner: We have lived in this house for 32 years, a two family house on a side street off Lower Thames Street. I am a book restorer and my wife, Kristyn, is a professional gardener. I am also a sailor with 30,000 offshore miles and Newport is a perfect place for us to indulge in all our interests.

                              Why the Owner Chose Newport:
                              When we first moved in, Thames Street was boatyards and ship chandleries. Now it is shops and restaurants, marinas and nightclubs and though we are in the middle of it all, being on a side street allows us to enjoy a quiet not afforded on Thames Street. We can walk to virtually every restaurant in town, some a minute away, others 12. The launch to the Festivals, Goat Island and Jamestown is a four minute walk. Newport and all it has to offer is literally right on our doorstep.
