One of our favorite things about selling homes in Newport, RI is that a large portion of these properties embody unique historic design elements. Built in the early 1900’s, some of the historic homes in Newport feature built in shelving, lovely glass kitchen cabinetry or gorgeous original hardwood floors. One particular, quite noteworthy element always brings a smile to our faces: the arched doorway. In a world driven by sharp, contemporary lines, it’s always lovely to see a rounded opening at the end of a corridor or in-between rooms. One of our latest sales listings, 18 Burdick Avenue features a pair of these arched doorways and that add so much character to this home!
