Description

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, and a veranda on the south and sun porch 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 ft. 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 formal dining room with a Schonbek chandelier, glass-enclosed display shelves and fireplace with gas insert. Major improvements to this 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath house include a remodeled kitchen that includes appliances that are less than 5-years old, wet bar 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-in yard. Plenty of off-street parking and a new roof on the 2-car garage. This stately property is conveniently located within minutes from Downtown Newport and Harbor, the Newport Bridge and Navy Base.
