About the owner: We have been a fan of Newport since 1989 and love the historic and architectural charm as well as the open scenic cliff walk views. Newport has offered us a unique home away from home with a atmosphere that is unforgettable…Married in Newport in the mid nineties and have raised our family with Newport as a central figure in our children's lives.
Why the Owner Chose Newport: If I have free time then I want to spend it in Newport, it is my favorite place to be. I wanted to be right down town near all of the action of the downtown triangle, but still have some peace and quiet. This home was the perfect mix of both! I love its old world charm, the history (National Historic Landmark) and being close to all of my favorite spots in town. I can walk to the beach, Tennis Hall of Fame, the mansions and fantastic restaurants. Being able to walk to these places is key because of summer traffic and tough parking!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Some unique benefits this house has to offer is it's proximately to many of Newport's favorite spots (within just a few blocks from the harbor, Cooke House, Black Pearl, Yesterday’s, Buskers, Starbucks, the movie theatre, etc.) The house also boasts a charming patio for BBQ's and fun as well as a romantic 4th floor cupola which looks out over the harbor. Every piece of furniture was selected to complete the perfect feel for this vacation get-away...from a beautiful mahogany 4-post bed to a wistful breezy sleigh bed, Bright and beautiful summer bedrooms on third floor, bookcase full of great summer reading material, cozy alcove and fireplace reading areas.
