120 Miantonomi Ave

Villalon, designed by Richard Upjohn, is both a grand estate and an intimate home at the same time. Almost immediately after completion in 1857 it was commented on, written about, and emulated by architects as famous as Richard Morris Hunt and others. The property, on the National Register of Historic Homes, is in excellent condition with upgraded utilities, a modern kitchen, en suite modern bathrooms and current fire code compliance. Upjohn was also a gifted decorator as evidenced by soaring ceilings, dramatic moldings, oversized windows protected inside and outside by shutters, built in bookcases, oriental style stained glass windows, marble fireplaces -many of them working, variations on the red and white oak flooring inserts that constantly delight and, of course a huge front porch held up with gigantic Ionic columns. Unlike many estates that over time have lost their integrity this property is remarkably intact and has been thoughtfully maintained. You just need to enter through the original stone gates, motor up the circular driveway lined with many of the original trees now in full maturity to see why this property became so well known. Sited privately high on a hill overlooking Easton’s Pond yet near Newport’s sandy beaches and downtown activities, you have the best of all options. It awaits a new steward who also admires how Upjohn created a new type of architecture: an American “country summer seat .” The grounds easily accommodate a pool and other outbuildings.
