The Property

Carrollton House (c. 1850) is a gracious Federal era Greek Revival style home located on a quiet street off prestigious Bellevue Avenue within walking distance to the Cliff Walk, Tennis Hall of Fame & shops along Bellevue Avenue. This historic residence has been previously owned by a number of wealthy Newport summer residents including Isaac Roosevelt, grandfather of President Theodore Roosevelt. The stately entrance with transom and side light windows surrounding the front door opens to the foyer with a graceful curved staircase.

The formal living room benefits from double glass fronted pocket doors at its entrance and a fireplace with attractive original white tile with a subtle floral motif. Via another glass fronted pocket door, one enters into the formal dining room which then leads onto the elegant den with another charming fireplace with original tile. The high ceilings and large windows provide lots of natural light, thereby giving this historic home a very spacious ambience. Refinished, detailed hardwood floors are found throughout the residence. The master bedroom suite benefits from one of the 4 fireplaces with original tile details, a media / sitting room, bathroom, and large closet area. The 2nd bedroom on the 2nd floor also benefits from a fireplace and the 3rd and 4th bedrooms are on the 3rd floor. The house is sited toward its southerly property line, creating an extremely large side yard shaded by mature specimen trees.
