Newport house description

Welcome to our inviting and cozy 2500 square foot home located in the historic and coveted Top of the Hill area of Newport. This is a wonderful, established neighborhood with dozens of architecturally significant homes. Newport has been the historic home of America's Cup racing which returned in June, 2012 for the AC World Series. Our home sits at the meeting point of the historic elegance of Bellevue Avenue and vibrant local culture.

You will be able to park your car for your entire visit. We have one off-street parking space and unlimited lightly used on-street parking. We are a 15 minute or less walk to all Bellevue Avenue shopping, Touro Synagogue, the International Tennis Hall of Fame and college league baseball in one of the oldest baseball parks in the nation.

You can easily walk to the nation's oldest tavern, oldest lending library and oldest synagogue. A slightly longer jaunt will bring you to the bustling waterfront with all the restaurants and shops you could possibly want.

This is our primary residence, not a sparsely furnished investment property. Our home is comfortable and thoughtfully decorated with an abundance of fine art. There are hardwood floors throughout. There is wifi available through the entire house. Bring your iPod or CDs as there is a central sound system throughout the first floor.

The kitchen has been recently renovated and furnished with stainless steel appliances and granite counters. You will find yourselves gathered around the custom cherrywood island with seating for four. The kitchen is fully equipped for preparing and serving gourmet meals. Of course, there is a gas fired grill just outside the kitchen door for any grilling that you might want to do.

You may prefer to enjoy Newport's wonderful restaurants. We are a 2 block walk to the restaurant center on Broadway which is where most locals prefer to dine. There are 8 restaurants in one block and 20 in a 3 block area. Most weekend nights it is possible to find live music in this small area.

This home is located in a vibrant and welcoming neighborhood. Evenings can be spent on the front porch, enjoying a glass of wine or chatting with passing neighbors. There is a quiet fully fenced-in back yard, if you prefer to get away from the bustle of Kay Street. Please feel free to cut any of the many perennial flowers that bloom throughout the summer. We were a prize winner in the 2011 Newport in Bloom contest. A gardener visits regularly when we are not in town.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2006

          About the owner: We are a retired couple who have lived aboard boats off and on for a number of years. We found ourselves returning to Newport Harbor again and again and finally decided we wanted to make Newport our 'home port.' We moved here in 2002 and love it. We are both involved in comunity issues and activities and feel very invested in the community. We have found our neighborhood to be warm and welcoming to us and to visitors. We both love the vitality and unique quality of Newport. Herk is a former IT consultant and Milly was an accountant. We have four grown children and our buffer against the empty nest, Bella, a 10 year old Portuguese Water Dog.

          Why the Owner Chose Newport:
          Our location cannot be matched. We are a 15 minute walk from the cultural and activity center of Newport, Washington Square. The historic Jane Pickens Theater is located on the square. It offers first-run, usually independent films. The area surrounding our home is replete with architectural gems. There are numerous homes designed by some of America's finest architects, including Dudley Newton, George Champlin Mason, Richard Morris Hunt, Stanford White and others. It is a 15 minute walk to the harbor or the Cliff Walk and Easton's Beach. It is a bit farther to the world famous mansions, the summer home of the very wealthy in the late 19th century. Newport is known for its festivals. The Jazz and Folk Festivals take place the last week of July and first week of August. There are other music festivals, various ethnic festivals and food and wine festivals all year round.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Restaurants-2 blocks Shopping-a few blocks in almost any direction Newport Art Museum-5 minute walk Redwood Library and Atheneum-5 minute walk International Tennis Hall of Fame-10 minute walk Beaches-1 mile Mansions-3 miles Nearby: Bike riding on Ocean Drive The Cliff Walk Kite flying at Brenton Point Salve Regina University Fort Adams State Park International polo Norman Bird Sanctuary Vineyards
