Imaging walking in that entryway every evening.
A spectacular old estate. If you can get past the increble library that looks like a scene from “Clue” you’ll go on to find a huge kitchen with what looks like a original vintage cooking stove. The rooms are huge and the floors are remarkable.One of Newport’s grand old Victorian homes. Originally built by the Emerson Family in 1989 as “The Gables,” on September 1, 1899, the then Argus-Spectator local newspaper reported “a rare model of elegance and beauty…”. The Gables has three floors, a full basement, and a small attic. There are 22 rooms. It has nine bedrooms, three covered piazzas, an elaborate staircase with a stained-glass window, frescoed walls and ceilings, a dumbwaiter, and speaking tubes. A large addition of a two-story hall with a bar, kitchen space, and stage was built and was home to the Moose Lodge of Newport from 1944 – 1991. This unique property requires the same sentiment as its owners; it needs someone to restore and bring it back to its historical grandeur. Located in a commercial district, this property could be utilized as office space or converted into a single-family home. There may be some tax benefits to residing the property with grant funding. Many opportunities and potential exist in this special place.
