Presenting “The George Champlin Mason House”, the private estate of Newport’s most famed native architect whose works include The Eisenhower House, Chepstow and the Naval War College. This 1873 Victorian Mansion is currently run as a boutique hotel. Aptly named “The Architect’s Inn” it features 11 en-suite guest rooms, innkeepers accommodations and a modern commercial kitchen. The main level of the mansion has been meticulously restored and offers a library with wood-burning fireplace, a large formal dining room serviced by a butlers kitchen and a parlor that opens through double doors to a gracious covered porch. Impressive design elements include an elaborate gable-ended porch, Swiss chalet-style- filigree wood trim, carved fireplace mantles and intricate parquet flooring. The tranquil grounds are comprised of lush gardens, a terrace for alfresco dining and beautiful specimen trees. An extraordinary opportunity to own a piece of Newport’s architectural history. Ideally located near Cliffwalk, Easton’s beach and Bellevue Avenue.

Found in the desirable Adam’s Point neighborhood, this shingled colonial is set back from the quiet dead end road and offers just over an acre of private yard. When you enter the home, you will immediately feel the comfort of the wide plank wood floors and the kitchen that invites family and friends to gather while while gourmet meals are being prepared. Depending on your entertaining needs, meals can be served in the formal dining room or in the space adjacent to the kitchen for a more casual feel. There is a living room with fireplace that is currently being used as a billiard room allowing for the flexibility of your needs. The generous sized family room is just off the kitchen, where you can gather by the fireplace, and enjoy the view of the outdoor entertaining area. On your way out to the fenced pool area, you will walk through a bright tiled wet bar area to not only entertain your interior guest but all your summer guest by the pool.
