Built for Rhode Island’s Lieutenant Governor (1880-1883), The Henry Harrison Fay house has been beautifully restored and renovated to honor its rich history, while designed for today’s lifestyle. This property strikes a perfect balance of a grand Newport house and a comfortable family home. With ten foot ceilings, exquisite moldings and original wood floors, the first floor boasts a gracious living room with new custom built-ins, a handsome wood paneled study, a formal dining room with period details, an elevator, a classic butler’s pantry and a new large chef’s kitchen. The enclosed sunroom off of the kitchen offers a perfect early morning sanctuary. There are four bedrooms upstairs, three of which are en-suite; one features a private deck overlooking the large manicured back yard. With six working fireplaces, the list of recent renovations is long, including a wood shingle roof, utilities, bathrooms, renovated kitchen, integrated sound system, LCD thermostats, video surveillance, irrigated grounds, invisible fence, and much more. The third floor has new skylights, and is framed, plumbed, insulated and ready to finish. A sweet detached three-car garage sits at the end of a long driveway that provides parking for more than ten cars. The park-like private corner lot has an inviting patio and firepit area, and an extraordinary Copper Beech tree. As spectacular as the outdoor space is, there is plenty of opportunity for you to create your own personal outdoor paradise.
