Step up on to the custom mahogany front porch - how charming - and open the mahogany front door and enjoy the drama of the wide plank pine floors, the high ceilings, and the now open floor plan with the sun streaming in through the south, east and west facing windows. The dining room is located at the front of the house, affording generous space for the fireplaced living room in the middle of the home. The living room nook is the perfect place for the sofa and concomitant seating. The wet bar and pantry are both accessible to the eat in kitchen and the dining room. Benjamin F. Downing, the head carpenter for Richard Morris Hunt, built this home for his family just before the turn-of-the century and it shows his design skills especially as relates the staircase - a dramatic element that carries from the first to the second floor. Lovely lighting fixtures, carefully placed recessed lighting, surround sound, high efficient gas heat, handsome replacement windows and central air on all four floors make this an efficient home to manage. There is room on the rear deck for a grill or just hang out in the fantastic blue stone hardscaped garden with mature trees with under lights, a koi pond and from the lower level a wonderful kitchenette with subzero refrigerator and quartz counter tops. Either the third floor or the lower level affords the guest space needed or a perfect solution for at home offices. Walk everywhere and yet have a peaceful oasis in downtown Newport.
