About 71 3rd Street

A charming historical school house in the highly sought-after Point section of Newport. This gem of a property is walking distance to the water (while not being located in the flood zone) and close to the downtown area of Newport where one can enjoy shopping and dining. The home boasts off-street parking, a large garden, an outdoor shower and a Brazilian hardwood deck, cathedral ceilings and a chef's kitchen. This is the ultimate get-a-way for a relaxing weekend or a place to entertain friends throughout the year. (1,330 sq feet = 680 sq feet of living space above ground and 650 sq feet on the lower level) Originally built prior to 1796 and stood at the corner of Barney Street and Mount Vernon Street. It was the first integrated school house in Newport from 1805 owned and taught by Eleazor Trevett, a schoolmaster. The Trevett School was discontinued some time in the 1820s and in 1850 Mr. Trevett sold the land on Barney Street and moved the house with the belfry to land on the Cherry Street side of the present Stella Maris. In 1852, the land where the house stood was again sold and the house was moved once more to its present address between 1853 and 1863. In 2020, the entire property was painstakingly restored/rebuilt to boast many of the features of the original structure that had been lost through the years.
