About the Property

3 bedroom/3 bath waterfront,dock,beach. Brand new appliances!

This three bedroom condominium in a historic waterfront carriage house with spectacular panoramic views is minutes by foot, car or boat from downtown Newport with its restaurants, galleries and shops. It is a beautifully furnished first floor private unit on the grounds of Beechbound, a magnificent turn-of-the century Newport mansion designed by distinguished architectural firm Peabody-Stearns. It looks upon a rolling lawn and landscape, created by Frederick Law Olmstead, the designer of New York's Central Park. The house was last updated in 2016 with total renovation of all bathrooms, kitchen and living spaces. Plus new appliances in the kitchen! The unit measures over 2300 square feet with a fireplace, 12' ceilings and 19th century crafted moldings throughout. A very large living, dining and kitchen area is highlighted by the panoramic ocean view. The master bedroom and great room directly face Newport Harbor and Fort Adams (site of the famous Newport jazz and folk festivals) with sliding doors leading directly to a large deck, perfect for relaxing.

With three large bedrooms and three bathrooms this home comfortably sleeps 8 and features a master suite with dressing area with vanity, large closets and a double shower bath. Central air cools the unit on the few occasions when the ocean breeze is not strong enough. A walk down the sprawling lawn leads to Beechbound's private beach, boathouse, large deep water pier and floating docks. Photos included only hint to beauty of this magical retreat.

Owner info

About the owner: This has been our family summer home for close to four decades. We have spent many peaceful hours sitting on the expansive deck watching the boats go by on the Newport harbor and enjoying spectacular sunsets. We love playing sports with the kids on the sprawling green lawn that runs down to the waterfront. Our kids also enjoy collecting sea shells on the small private beach and jumping off the dock into the ocean. We often take the Newport Harbor boat launch into town for lunch or shopping and enjoy the benefits of not having to worry about parking.

Why the Owner Chose Newport, RI, USA:
If you are looking for Newport charm from an era long gone this is it. A carraige house on the property of one of the famed 'robber baron' mansions made infamous in movies and novels like the Great Gatsby. If you want to be part of the scene in a peaceful serene and modernized home this is it!
