Kay Catherine real estate began as the mansions of Bellevue Ave took shape and Newport's Kay Catherine area experienced a building boom of its own spearheaded by well-to-do merchants, ship captains, and artists. Members of the local aristocracy employed many of the same architects who designed the mansions including Richard Morris Hunt, Stanford White, and Charles McKim.
Kay Catherine real estate consists of lovely Second Empire, Queen Anne, Stick and Shingle Style Victorians on spacious lots with lavish gardens and rare specimen trees.
