NEWPORT, RHODE ISLAND One of Newport’s historic homes, “The John Frye House,” located at 35 Second Street, was sold for $1,290,000 by Lila Delman Real Estate International. Annie Becker, Broker Associate, represented the seller of this recently updated home with a stunning professionally designed interior.

“If ever there was an example of how a home built in 1760 can be aesthetically and mechanically updated for today’s buyers, this is it,” commented Annie. “35 Second Street retains its historic charm with the 12×12 windows, fireplaces and wide-plank floors, with gleaming new kitchen and baths, central air conditioning and updated systems for modern comforts.”

The John Frye House was built as a four-room Gambrel in 1760. Another home was moved to the site and attached as is evident by the unusual roof lines. The building was part of the Operation Clapboard restoration of the Point Section in the 1960s.

Measuring 3,343 square feet across three stories, the house has five bedrooms, six fireplaces, a grand entry hall, and a handsome brick courtyard.
