79 Second St

The John W. Bigelow Carriage House- an early example of the American Shingle Style was designed by architect Charles F. McKim, one of the founders of the architectural firm McKim, Mead and White that gained prominence during Newport's Gilded Age. The residence was thoughtfully renovated in 2005 by Newport Collaborative Architects. The sun-filled living room with its large stone fireplace opens to a private southwest facing bluestone patio. The chef's eat-in kitchen has a large pantry and features upscale appliances and appointments- Subzero, Wolf, and Bosch. Off the kitchen is a mudroom leading to a small porch. The office with fireplace on the first floor can double as a den. The second floor features a large, sunny and spacious primary bedroom with private bath along with two more guest bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. The third floor has two additional bedrooms with a shared bathroom as well as a lookout tower. All bathrooms come with Toto toilets and radiant heated floors. Air conditioning, Hydro-air heating and a lawn with an irrigation system are just a few of the other modern amenities. The property is located in Newport's historic Point in an area that does not require flood insurance. Just a minute to the waterfront and Battery Park and a short walk to downtown Newport.
