Built in 1750, the James Nicholl House is a gorgeous Colonial set right on historic Thames Street in coastal Newport. This home reflects all the history and charm that Newport has to offer while also being located right by the Bay.
Stepping inside, guests are welcomed into an inviting entryway with a fireplace, brass candlelight fixtures, and restored hardwood floors throughout.
The entryway offers French door access to a quiet home office with its own separate entrance, while also opening into a comfortable living room with a wood burning fireplace and plenty of natural light. There you can enjoy drinks from a nautical bar featuring a ship-like design with wood and glass shelves and a wine fridge.
For eating in, an elegant dining room showcasing a hand painted mural will bring everyone to the table. After dining, retreat to a library with custom built-ins and relax by the fire.
Occupying the back of the first level is a gorgeous chef’s kitchen updated with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a wall of windows overlooking the meticulously cared for gardens.
The kitchen steps out to a private patio ideal for al fresco dining, cocktails, and garden parties.
Heading up the wide staircase, the second floor landing leads to a pair of bedroom suites. Featuring high cathedral ceilings and its own fireplace, the master suite is a generous space offering a private dressing room and ensuite bath. The second suite includes a private sitting room, fireplace, ensuite bath, and a linen closet with washer and dryer.
The third floor of the home enjoys two additional bedrooms and a full bath. The entire floor is accented with original exposed brick and beams while a series of skylights allow the sun to pour in.
