Built in the 1680's, "Conservatory" is a unique barn conversion overlooking Newport's thriving harbor. Tired of kitsch modern architecture, this property radiates exceptional character, such as hand-carved details and exposed 17th c. posts and beams. "Conservatory" has 3800 sq. ft. of versatile living space. Post-and-beam construction allows for interior walls to be easily changed to alter living spaces. Zoned General Business, the property provides even greater versatility; it can be converted into a B&B, a boutique hotel, or a small business. Just a few hundred yards from the harbor, there are superb westward views of the Newport waterfront. "Conservatory" commands a protected view of Newport's internationally acclaimed sailing activities. Centrally located in the vigorous Historic Hill scene, shopping, entertainment, historic churches, peaceful pocket parks and several respected cultural institutions are a short distance away. The building is presently configured with three bedrooms, two and a half baths, a large art studio, drawing room, library, and two spacious country kitchens. With an uphill elevation of 22', "Conservatory" has plenty of room to add a third story or roof deck. There is currently atrium access to the roof with a shallow pitch platform providing views from Ft. Adams to Newport Shipyard.
