Newport Dutch Colonial offers Location, Condition & Price!


The “Big 3” for Newport, RI home sales

It’s simple really.  Buying a home in RI requires careful consideration of location, condition and price.  If 2 of these 3 components are excellent, you can usually compromise a bit on the 3rd. Every once in a while, however, you find a home that has all 3 – good location, good condition and a good price.  That’s when you want to make your move, and that’s the situation at 11 Greenough Place, just listed in Newport, RI.

Location? Check!

Few Newport locations offer all the advantages of Greenough Place. It’s a pretty little dog-leg-of-a-lane tucked away from the through streets of the Kay Catherine neighborhood. Yet it’s within easy walking distance of town, beach and beautiful Bellevue Ave. What’s more, it’s home to a distinguished collection of architecturally important homes with a few modern ones sprinkled in.

Condition? OMG… Check!

A gorgeous entry porch was transformed into a year-round sun room with new floor, bead board ceiling, windows and heat. The basement is spotless and belies its 1935 origin.

The perennial garden blooms from April to November in tidy beds surrounding the fenced yard, back deck and 2-car garage.

Price? Check! (for yourself! 🙂
