About 1 Admiral Kalbfus Road

The "George Nightingale Durfee, Jr. House" (circa 1916-1917) is a classic, Colonial Revival embodying distinctive characteristics and defining details such as its symmetrical facade with central portico and pillars, a veranda on the south, and sunporch on the north sides of the house. The property, which is located on the Newport/Middletown line, has been restored and lovingly maintained by the current owners. Beyond the elaborate portico and front door, there is a wood-paneled vestibule that leads into the welcoming 24-foot-wide foyer with bridal staircase and original 5-tier crystal chandelier that has been beautifully restored. This home is an entertainer's dream with a formal living room with fireplace flanked by built-in cabinets and two sets of French-doors that lead to the veranda. Across the foyer is the dining room with a stunning Schonbek chandelier, glass-enclosed display shelves, and fireplace with gas insert. Major improvements to this 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath house include a complete remodel of the kitchen to include appliances that are less than five years old, wet bar with beverage refrigerator, and laundry area plus two remodeled bathrooms. The grounds of the property have been thoughtfully designed with multiple gardens, stone walls, bluestone walkways, marble cobblestones, and a large, fenced yard. There is plenty of off-street parking and a new roof on the two-car garage. The "George Nightingale Durfee, Jr. House" is conveniently located within minutes from downtown Newport and the harbor, Newport Bridge, and Navy Base.
