About Lou Puerini
This is the story of our mom, Marie Puerini. In the past few years her health has declined and, since December, 2013 we have been assisting her with the management of her property. She passed away on December 14, 2017. With deep appreciation and love for her classy style we hope to carry on for her. Here is her story: 'My sister was many years my senior and was already living in Newport when I was born. Needless to say, Newport was a completely different town when I was growing up; smaller, less inhabited, no tourists, no restaurants, few stores, no style, and lots of handsome Navy men. As a little girl, I came on weekends with my mother and fell in love with the town. Many years later I bought my first house here, gathered my children and never looked back. My youngest son wanted to open a small restaurant when he was 19 years old, so I left a very successful business and we became partners. That was 36 years ago, and the restaurant, now called Ida's,, became very successful.'
Lou Puerini purchased this cottage in 1990
Why Lou Puerini chose Bellevue Avenue Historic District
We have always loved Newport and have found it amazingly beautiful, relaxing and exciting. Recently, Newport was listed on ABC GOOD MORNING AMERICA as one of the 10 MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACES IN AMERICA. Imaging living here! The URL for Good Morning America's Video can be found in a Google search using key words GMA's 10 Most Beautiful Places in America.
What makes this cottage unique
My house and my Garden Apartment are on Almy Court, with views from the second floors that encompass Almy Pond. I chose this house by driving by one day many years ago and falling in love with it. It is a quiet area, lovely for walking. Just a few blocks down is Reject Beach, open to the public. It is part of Bailey's Beach, which is a private beach for the 'Summer Set'.
