The House. It is an elegant period (1875) home full of light, high ceilings, wood floors, modern kitchen with new appliances, including a wet bar and wine cooler, and a sunlit, separate dining area. The master bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub and another bathroom has a steam shower. The top floor has two bedrooms( (two double beds and two singles) and a shared bathroom, ideal for children and young people. The fully finished and furnished basement, with a double bed and a separate seating area, is great for watching sports and movies. The house has three flat-screen TVs (library/master bedroom/basement), Wifi throughout, and chairs, towels, and kids' surf boards for the beach. Relax on the spacious front and back porches. There is a propane barbecue grill for summer dining on the rear porch..

Set well back from the street and screened by a high privet hedge, the house is a quiet haven in a busy town. The yard is private and prettily landscaped. There is room in the driveway for up to five cars, and on-street parking is free and unrestricted.

There are four good restaurants on Broadway at the bottom of our street, a mere three minutes walk.The popular Irish Fastnet pub and the historic Jane Pickens movie theater are a few minutes further on, as is Thames Street, with its shops, restaurants, and pubs. The Viking Hotel and Bellevue Avebue are just down the road. The harbor is also within walking distance, which means you can stroll down there and buy lobsters and clams off the boats that caught them, shop and have a meal at one of the many dock-front restaurants, or take a boat tour around Narrangansett Bay.

Minutes away by car are a fine selection of Atlantic Ocean beaches, the Tennis Hall of Fame, the Bellevue Avenue mansions, and a convenient shopping plaza. There is an excellent 18-hole golf course at the Newport National Golf Club, another short ride away.

Newport's summer season features the renowned Classical, Jazz, and Folk Festivals, tournaments and inductions at the Tennis Hall of Fame, and several notable yacht races.

Car: Recommended

Newport is famous for its summer season. It is home to the remarkable Bellevue Avenue mansions, the Tennis Hall of Fame, and the Classical, Jazz, and Folk Music Festivals, It has a variety of great Atlantic beaches, all close by. Sports on offer include swimming, sailing, surfing, wind and kite surfing, golf, horseback riding, hiking, fishing, and tennis.

A charming, old colonial town with narrow, cobblestoned streets, Newport is ideal for sightseeing and shopping. Many of the attractions, notably the restaurants, pubs, shops, and the harbor, are within walking distance of the house. Not surprisingly, seaford--fresh and varied--is the leading gastronomic specialty, but there is also an abundance of locally produced meat, fruit, and vegetables available at colorful farmers' markets..

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Apart from the pleasure of staying in an elegant and comfortable house, the greatest joy is being able to step outside and walk through Newport's ancient streets to most of the city's attractions. The house is in the historic Kay Street District so, whichever way you turn, there are lovely old homes, tall, shady trees, and flowering gardens to accompany you on your journey. No need to fight for a parking space, or risk picking up a ticket. Enjoy the street life of a lively and virbant city in its summer finery.
