About 72 Washington St

Villa Marina (aka Sanford-Covell House) - built in 1870 for Milton H Sanford and purchased 25 years later by William King Covell II is offered publicly for the first time since 1895! A historic treasure fronting along Washington Street in Newport's famed Point neighborhood, the Villa offers unsurpassed and unobstructed waterfront Harbor views and sunsets from almost every vantage point on the property. A deep-water dock with a custom built cupola sitting area and inground heated, salt water pool are included amenities that should go along with any Newport waterfront property. Presently used as an up and running inn, but being marketed as a single family opportunity.
