About 77 Third St

Located in one of Newport's most coveted neighborhoods, The Solomon Southwick House is the only home on The Point that looks unobstructed, straight down a cross street to the harbor. This sprawling residence has been elegantly restored over the years but maintains wonderful vintage details like wide plank pine flooring and eight fireplaces- 6 of which are still functioning! Built with sturdy post-and-beam construction, this commanding Colonial has 9-foot ceilings and a spacious, functional flow. On the main level, there is a formal dining room - complete with 12-over-12 Harvey windows complemented by handsome interior wood shutters. Next, flow into the grand living room which boasts built-in cabinetry & shelving and 2 fireplaces. Venture past the powder room into the kitchen; complete with 2 gas ranges, wine refrigerator and exposed wood ceiling beams. Finally there is a light & bright parlor which is currently being used as a home office. The 2nd level offers a primary suite with full bath & laundry room along with 3 additional bedrooms and a second full bath. The 3rd level offers 2 more bedrooms, a full bath and flexible living space. A driveway lines the right side of the house, with tandem parking for 3 large vehicles. Around back is stunning outdoor space which over the years has been a favorite stop on the Newport Garden Tour with bluestone patios intertwined with enchanting gardens. A must-see, this historic home is the perfect space for modern day living.
