Why Elizabeth Dupont chose Newport
This property was built in 1870 and is detailed with a variety of hand carved woods and has beautiful architectural style structure. Because it is situated on 4 acres in the south end of town, it is very much a sanctuary but still easily accessible to the local attractions. The decor in the apartment is a mix of antiques, yachting memorabilia and artwork. See REVIEWS on the Hilltopia listing #1063351.
What makes this Apartment unique
It was love at first sight twenty years ago despite the house's dilapidated condition at the time. These past two decades have been spent restoring the property and the grounds as a labor of love with a lot of sweat equity. Hilltop overlooks Almy pond with the ocean in the distance

This is a unique property close to the ocean and all Newport has to offer. We parked our car and were able to walk to restaurants, shops and the Cliff Walk. Lovely apartment with all you need plus many thoughtful touches. The property is private and extremely quiet with beautiful grounds.
