About 72 Washington Street

Sanford-Covell Villa Marina was built on the site of the waterfront home and workshop of the famous cabinet maker, John Goddard, and is a remarkable example of Newport's early domestic resort Victorian-style architecture. Among some of the more extraordinary features are the grand staircase and entrance hall, which rises 35 feet from floor to ceiling, its elevation being accented by projecting balconies at various levels. The woods used in the house on its floors, walls, and ceilings include oak, ash, cherry, hard pine, maple, black walnut, butternut, and ebony! Relax on the comfortable covered wraparound waterfront porch, and enjoy spectacular sunsets over Newport Harbor and the bay while watching boats sail and motor by.

Claimed to be 'the most elegantly finished house ever built in Newport' by a Boston journal dated 1870, this house presently is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Although presently open and run as one of Newport's finest inns, it is being marketed and offered to the public as a single-family residential opportunity. Historic restrictions are attached to the deed and can be reviewed upon request.
