Newport, R.I. If you’re going to have a second home, why not have it in the land once known as the “summering White House”? History, water, proximity to Providence 30 miles away plus all those mansions — Newport is where the mansion concept may have been conceived. I’ve heard it’s a reviving second home paradise.
This is “Ship Watch”, on the water. Enjoy beautiful sunsets and yachting from “Ship watch”, a truly unique waterfront home in traditional Newport style. Wonderful updates throughout a traditional home built in 1987 updated with new kitchen, baths and elevator to all floors. The home has 7,000 square feet with 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and one half bath. There is also an attached two car garage (rare in the older homes), central heat and air. You will share a dock and driveway with neighbors, which means people are close by whether you need a cup of sugar or a fifth of gin. Reduced to $4,800,000.
