The Property

Villa 120, an original Newport Mansion, one of the largest land parcels and one of the largest and most private homes available on the island. A stylishly restored 9 ensuite Italianate Villa with commercial zoning allowance, designed by the noted 19th-century architect Richard Upjohn and one of the first of its kind built in the United States, Villa 120 was a summer residence for Hamilton Hoppin of New York, a businessman and scion of a prominent Rhode Island family. Located just off one of the primary roads serving Aquidneck Island, and within minutes of downtown Newport and its wonderful beaches, historic sights and renowned dining. Insulated by mature specimen trees and plantings, the home and expansive front lawn, secret garden and original fountain is a hidden and peaceful oasis in the midst of one of the most vibrant and popular vacation destinations in the world.

The interior follows a symmetrical plan where the first sequence of rooms off the hall is the library and grand dining room framed by original mahogany paneled wainscot. Sited on an over-sized 64,032 sf parcel with over 20 designated parking spots, income potential for a 10cap return, and zoned R10, which presents potential for subdivision. With a modern chef’s kitchen, expansive great rooms flooded with natural light, and estate-sized front lawn that has accommodated weddings and significant receptions, Villa 120 would make a remarkable family compound or a year round fine event destination.
