About Noel Walters
The restoration was led by home owner and interior designer Noel Walters who has 20 years experience. She has restored the home to its turn of the century beauty, making it a perfect Narragansett getaway for large groups or big families for years to come. The goal of the restoration was to preserve the soul and history of the house while simultaneously introducing new, more modern elements and conveniences. Thankfully, most of the original architecture remains intact. Apart from the removal of one wall separating the pantry from the kitchen, the floor plan remains entirely original. All the hardwood flooring in the home is also original. The house is now equipped with modern amenities like central heating, air conditioning, and a cooks' kitchen boasting all new appliances, including a Wolf Range stove.

What makes this House unique
This Victorian beach home was originally built in 1887 by architect George A. Freeman. Freeman built the home for Ada and Brander Matthews, Columbia University’s first dramatic literature professor. Located at 50 Central Street in the historic Pier neighborhood of Narragansett, Rhode Island -- the home is just a five minute walk from the ocean front.
