Waterfront Mansion Carriage House on Newport Harbor

Property type condo
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

3 bedroom/3 bath waterfront,dock,beach. Brand new appliances!

This three bedroom condominium in a historic waterfront carriage house with spectacular panoramic views is minutes by foot, car or boat from downtown Newport with its restaurants, galleries and shops. It is a beautifully furnished first floor private unit on the grounds of Beechbound, a magnificent turn-of-the century Newport mansion designed by distinguished architectural firm Peabody-Stearns. It looks upon a rolling lawn and landscape, created by Frederick Law Olmstead, the designer of New York's Central Park. The house was last updated in 2016 with total renovation of all bathrooms, kitchen and living spaces. Plus new appliances in the kitchen! The unit measures over 2300 square feet with a fireplace, 12' ceilings and 19th century crafted moldings throughout. A very large living, dining and kitchen area is highlighted by the panoramic ocean view. The master bedroom and great room directly face Newport Harbor and Fort Adams (site of the famous Newport jazz and folk festivals) with sliding doors leading directly to a large deck, perfect for relaxing.

With three large bedrooms and three bathrooms this home comfortably sleeps 8 and features a master suite with dressing area with vanity, large closets and a double shower bath. Central air cools the unit on the few occasions when the ocean breeze is not strong enough. A walk down the sprawling lawn leads to Beechbound's private beach, boathouse, large deep water pier and floating docks. Photos included only hint to beauty of this magical retreat.

About Jon Prescott

This has been our family summer home for close to four decades. We have spent many peaceful hours sitting on the expansive deck watching the boats go by on the Newport harbor and enjoying spectacular sunsets. We love playing sports with the kids on the sprawling green lawn that runs down to the waterfront. Our kids also enjoy collecting sea shells on the small private beach and jumping off the dock into the ocean. We often take the Newport Harbor boat launch into town for lunch or shopping and enjoy the benefits of not having to worry about parking.

Why Jon Prescott chose Newport

If you are looking for Newport charm from an era long gone this is it. A carraige house on the property of one of the famed 'robber baron' mansions made infamous in movies and novels like the Great Gatsby. If you want to be part of the scene in a peaceful serene and modernized home this is it!

Spaciou, clean, beautiful!

Spacious, comfortable beds, full kitchen, spectacular view! The house was very quiet and could never hear others when in your room! Close to town and sights! I would love to visit again!

Beautiful place to getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed everything about the carriage house in Newport. The breathtaking view while sitting out on the deck was the highlight of this location. The property is well maintained and everything we needed was there. We enjoyed the city of Newport, but this HomeAway was the perfect place to stay.

Amazing waterfront harbor view and perfect location. Nice house

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 minutes from everything and a 5 minute boat ride into Bowen's wharf (pick up right at the dock in the front yard). The photos of the place actually don't do it justice. This is a carriage house to a mansion that is between the New York Yacht Club and Fort Adams. The house itself has been updated and it looks like most everything is newer. Kitchen was fully appointed and it was much appreciated that there were staples like spices, sauces, foil and all the other stuff we hate to buy for a one week stay. Good wifi/cable /TV set up. Really a unique place

Live Like the Kennedy's

  • 5 of 5

You have to love the views of Newport Harbor from the deck and master BR. Staying in this turn of the century carriage house was a step back in time. The house has great character and is nicely updated and appointed. We thougoughly enjoy our stay. It was very comfortable for the 8 people we had in our party including dogs and kids. I could not get over the beauty of the expansive rolling lawn and sunset views. Location was better ideal for us - convenient to Newport harbor (bike, drive, boat launch or Uber) - our preference for getting to town was using the launch service at the waterfront dock - it was 10 minutes to town. This also provided the best way to appreciate all Newport has to offer in exclusive style. No traffic to deal with and we could enjoy the harbor scene going to and from town (late into the eventing) - nothing better! Very relaxing.
