Newport house description

The 'Old Acre' Estate enjoys the best location in Newport: a block from Bellevue Avenue, a short distance from the bustling wharves, historic Washington Square and artsy Broadway.

Old Acre Estate (house and guest cottage....cottage can be seen at Homeaway 3495496) is available for rent in May 2015 for the Volvo Ocean Race. The house and cottage accommodate 15 people.

We stand proudly in a grand turn-of- the century residential neighborhood across the street from the La Farge Perry House, Bayberry Inn and next door to the Marshall Slocum Inn.
Known as 'Old Acre' this early Victorian bracketed house was built in the 1850's and designed by renowned architects George Mason and Son. An elegant family home filled with antiques and art, Old Acre has been lovingly renovated and transformed into an easy living home complete with all comforts.

Ground floor: twin bedded room with en suite bathroom, sun drenched double parlors facing the garden with its specimen trees and flower beds and the pool. There is a large dining room with powder room nearby. The kitchen/great room has random slate floors and new appliances purchased in 2011. The great room boasts a gas fireplace, 55' Samsung, flat screened TV and comfortable seating and leads outside to the patios and hot tub.

Second floor: there is a front and back stair case leading upstairs to a library ( and a flat screened TV) and four more bedrooms that accommodate 8 people. ( king bed, queen bed, twin bedded room and a double bed). The master bedroom has a king bed and an en suite bathroom with separate shower and Jacuzzi tub and the other bedrooms share a hall bathroom with tub/shower.

Available for rent to captain, crew and family in participating regattas by a recognized yacht club.


You can park your car and walk everywhere, use the trolley cars or ride bikes. The Newport Art Museum, the Redwood Library, the Tennis Hall of Fame, the world famous Cliff Walk, the beaches (open to the public) and the harbor are mere minutes away.

                  Year Purchased: 1993

                  About the owner: We fell in love with Newport and all it had to offer and bought our house in 1993. After a thorough renovation, we moved in with our family of 5 and made 'Old Acre' our home. As of now, winter 2012, we are empty nesters and thought it would be an interesting experience to have visitors stay in our home.

                  Why the Owner Chose Newport:
                  The 'Old Acre' Estate enjoys the best location in Newport: a block from Bellevue Avenue, a short distance from the bustling wharves, historic Washington Square and artsy Broadway. Old Acre stands proudly in a grand turn-of-the century residential neighborhood across the street from the La Farge Perry House, Bayberry Inn and next door to the Marshall Slocum Inn.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The success of the VRBO listing of the Old Acre Guest Suite has convinced us to to rent the whole house for summer 2013. We have kept the reviews up for your perusal.
