An exterior capture of the Gothic-Revival Rockry House
The Isaac Bell House, owned by the Newport Preservation Society, is a National Historic Landmark.
Built in 1887, Edgehill was designed by McKim, Mead & White, an architectural firm that thrived at the turn of the twentieth century.
As real estate professionals, we often get access to some pretty significant homes. Particularly in Newport, where we see many estates that once were merely summer cottages to those that have shaped our country and community. The architectural styles range, from gothic revival to the classic shingle-style indicative of our seaside setting. This access will be available to the public on April 29th by way of the Neighborhoods of Newport House Tour. The tour is a fundraiser for St. Michael’s Country Day School, showcasing five prominent homes (in addition to the Isaac Bell House), ranging in design and glory. The money raised with this tour benefits the students and programs of the school (which is an independent, non-denominational, coeducational school for students in preschool through eighth grade). Below, you’ll find a brief highlight of some of these homes included on the tour. For more information, and to purchase your tickets, please visit here.
