About 142 146 Spring Street

The Telephone Building is an historic building in downtown Newport constructed in the late 19th century in Beaux-Arts style. This iconic, one-of-a-kind property was designed by Boston architects Perkins & Betton, the team behind the famed King Block on Newports storied Bellevue Avenue. The buildings brick and limestone faade features dentil molding and a grand Palladian window. The property was sensitively restored and converted into a residential building consisting of a spectacular loft-style owners unit and various income opportunities, thanks to its location in the General Business zone. The owners unit is contemporary in feel, yet retains historic elements, abounding in repurposed materials, exposed brick, oversized windows, and artisanal encaustic cement tile inserts. A floating staircase leads from the loft to an intimate rooftop salon that opens to a dramatic deck and green-roof garden overlooking Trinity Church, downtown Newport, and the Newport Bridge and Harbor. This unit lends itself to a live/work lifestyle with a first floor space that is ideal for an at-home office or gym. Just above the three-bedroom, 2.5 bathroom owners space is a separate and stylish one-bedroom space with roof deck accessperfect for extended family or Airbnb income. Finally, there is a two-bedroom first floor apartment with a cool mix of hardwood and polished concrete floors and its own Zen garden nestled in the back of the property, creating an urban oasis.
