About 35 Second Street, Newport, Rhode Island

The John Frye house, circa 1760, is situated on a corner lot in the coveted historic Point neighborhood, just one block from Newport Harbor. This rare, five-bedroom, five-bath gem features an exquisite blend of period detail and modern amenities. The professionally designed interior spares no expense with high-end lighting by Visual Comfort and wallpaper by Phillip Jeffries. Six original fireplaces, wide pine floors, and exposed beams add to the meticulous design. The main floor boasts a spacious foyer, formal living and dining rooms with fireplaces, a den/media room, powder room, and a striking kitchen. The centerpiece of the kitchen is an original baker’s fireplace with relined chimney. Custom cabinetry, marble and soapstone countertops, a sizable island, and stainless appliances complete the kitchen for serious chefs. The second level includes four bedrooms, three full baths, a sitting area, and laundry room. The entire third floor features a renovated large bedroom suite with full bath, built-in cabinetry, and spacious living area, which could serve as an in-law or guest apartment. A large private patio with mature trees is perfect for relaxing or entertaining. Just a short walk into town or over to Goat Island for a cocktail. Updated systems include gas heat and central air conditioning. Furnishings can be included for a seamless, turn-key experience. Off-street parking available.
