“The Benjamin Downing House” in the heart of the Historic Hill neighborhood of Newport, Rhode Island is totally restored with sensitively to its original fabric retaining its authenticity balanced by modern amenities and finishes. Samuel Barker was the head carpenter for Richard Morris Hunt and School Street itself was photographed many times by Frederick Law Olmsted as a the classic in-town street -lined then as now with handsome trees and other significant homes. 39 School Street has the Victorian porch, here rebuilt in mahogany as well as a spectacular, enclosed blue stone garden lined with mature trees, natural gas fireplace and a Koi pond. The perfect combination of serenity, fire and water. Living in the heart of Newport, parking is important and this property has two brick parking spaces.  This home has four levels of living space that works well for great shared work and play space.
