    Description

    Own a piece of history at the Benjamin S. Melville House - part of a series of 18th and early 19th century homes on Clarke Street - which is one of Newport's most charming historic streetscapes. This home is being sold as a single family and the rear portion of the lot will have an easement allowing Newport Inns -the abutter- to use it for overflow parking. There will still be parking for two cars tandem on the bricked side driveway. The charming brick patio on the west side adds extra outside living space. This property is one of the larger historic homes in the Historic Hill area with over 3,000 square feet of living space to work with. If you ever wanted to develop your creative vision, this is your opportunity. It is currently an inn. The photography reflects its current use. The floorplan will give you guidance on how the property could be easily reconfigured to create a generously sized home for friends and family. There was house on this lot in the late 17th century but in 1869, when the Melville family bought the property, the 18th century salt box was added on to and we have here now a 3,222 square foot home with great space. It is easy to show so bring your vision and pen and paper. Clarke Street is a short stroll to Washington Square, bustling Broadway and a few blocks from Bellevue Avenue. There is central air throughout most of the property and there are two fireplaces- that could be re activated. Lovely pine floors on both levels.
