"The George Mowatt House" is a special opportunity to own an 18th century home in Newport, RI on one of the city’s most charming streets. By the 19th century, the property was owned by a successful African American grocer who later was known for being integral to Newport’s vibrant African American community. Dating back to circa 1786, 83 Division Street is a classic example of a Rhode Island three quarter house. The property was restored under the supervision of Rhode Island-based architect Richard Long who ensured that the house maintained its colonial character such as wide pine floors throughout, fine architectural details, plaster walls, and five fireplaces including one in the keeping room with a beehive oven. Modern amenities were sensitively added such as a cobbled driveway for two cars, additional bathrooms, and central air conditioning. The spacious yard is a rare find in this neighborhood, offering endless possibilities for relaxation and entertainment. The large, inviting teak deck off the living area provides the perfect spot to soak in the tranquility of your surroundings. Nestled in the desirable Historic Hill neighborhood, this real estate gem will capture your heart. Imagine sipping your morning coffee or hosting gatherings with family and friends, all while gazing upon the elegant spire of Trinity Church. Perfectly situated within a couple of blocks of downtown Newport and Bellevue Avenue, a home of this caliber rarely comes to the market.
