Located in the exclusive Brenton Point district, this 3-bedroom 3.5 bath home comes with a carriage house with second story living quarters.
David E. Michael was referred by Architect, Mohamed Farzan of Newport Collaborative Architects and contracted by the owners to build this exquisite structure and the accompanying carriage house. Natural red cedar shingles on both walls and roof adorns the exterior of the wood constructed house. A paved circular drive in front of a bluestone walkway leads to the entrance.
A spiral staircase located just beyond the impressive entrance ascends to a second floor landing and ends in a third floor observation room overlooking the surrounding rolling hills and wooded landscape.
The kitchen, formal dining room, living room, guest bedroom, office and library comprise the main floor. A large wood fireplace, mantle and hearth are the focus of the living room, while a gas fireplace with log lighter is the centerpiece of the adjoining library. The living room and dining room were designed with coffered ceilings.
The large kitchen includes a breakfast nook, generous cabinet space, and stainless steel appliances that include a side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, a double oven, microwave, and flush mounted gas stove. A farmer's sink and marble counters complete the ensemble designed to satisfy the tastes of the most discriminating epicurean.
Large double doors open onto a mahogany deck at the back of the sumptuously decorated home where an outdoor gas fireplace with a log lighter provides warmth and atmosphere on chilly nights. A cedar pergola can be found off the back deck that borders a blue stone courtyard surrounded by a stone wall and gate.
The living quarters on the second story of the carriage house offer two bedrooms, two baths, a gas fireplace, a combination living room and kitchen as well as central air conditioning and heat.
