This beautiful Colonial styled home overlooking Narragansett Bay was originally built in 1929. The present owners contracted David E. Michael to restore, make extensive renovations, and construct additions to the existing structure.
The project entailed lowering the house, replacing the entire first floor, constructing a new garage and breezeway, re-building the front porch and reconfiguring the interior.
The stunning 7-bedroom wood constructed home now features, 4.5 baths, 12 rooms, a fireplace, a children's playroom with a mid-wall entry built into the staircase below the second story landing, and a separate garage connected to the main house by a heated breezeway.
The red cedar shingle exterior is painted gray with white trim. Burgundy slatted shutters frame the windows. The roofs are copper and slate, with integrated gutters and hidden downspouts on the front porch.
The master bedroom features a generous walk-in closet, an en suite bath, and motorized shades on two windows high on a wall below a vaulted ceiling. Light switches and dimmer controls are conveniently located on panels at the entryway to each room throughout the house.
An island with breakfast bar and sink is the centerpiece of a spacious, well- appointed gourmet kitchen with gas range, wall mounted microwave and conventional ovens, and side by side refrigerator and freezer. The custom designed and built kitchen cabinetry provides easily accessible and ample storage.
The floors are marble and stained oak. A custom-made wooden compass rose is built into the second story landing.
The front of the house overlooks Narragansett Bay with an unobstructed view of the Goat Island Lighthouse and the Newport-Verrazano Bridge from the wrap around porch.
Mohamed Farzan of Newport Collaborative Architects designed the home, and Ron Eloise Design Group decorated the interior. Philip Casey Woodworking built the custom cabinetry. Ryan Wallace was the foreman, and Kevin Sousa the finish carpenter.
