49 Division Street, Unit#1 Newport RI 02840

In the heart of Historic Hill, this Gothic Revival home with period details is a truly special piece of Newport history dating back to the 1700’s. The previous nave, currently the great room, defines cathedral ceilings! Open layout features hardwoods throughout with careful attention to smaller areas of focus which give the large space flow and functionality. You will find the updated kitchen, large dining area, updated full bath, office and library areas with plenty of seating for all on the main floor. Upstairs are the master bedroom with en-suite and the guest room loft which has one of the huge lancet stained-glass windows as a focal point. Wait… it gets better; also includes washer/dryer, dishwasher, comes furnished, one off-street parking spot, and a well-behaved pet may be considered for highly qualified tenants. Great references a must.

A little history…The road and surrounding areas were once a larger parcel divided into smaller lots to accommodate the fast-growing seagoing population changing the landscape from agriculture in nature to the present day nautical and Naval home we all know and love. This land was owned by Walter Clarke, the son of one of Newport’s founding fathers, Jeremiah Clarke. The location changed hands a few times but ended in the ownership of Newport Gardner (a freed slave) and was the meeting place of the Union Congregational Church; the first free African American church in Newport.
