The Property

From its perch on Halidon Hill, Aerie Cottage overlooks Newport, its historic harbor, the Newport Bridge and Narragansett Bay’s East Passage. Accessed via a private road, the entrance to the driveway is flanked by stone walls and mature hedges. A thorough renovation of both buildings, completed in 2015, with extensive site work and new landscaping, created a stylish and tranquil home…a contemporary classic preserved for generations to come. The main cottage is an oasis of intimate spaces for quiet enjoyment and open areas for entertaining.

The materials – reclaimed walnut, original paneling, exposed beams, stacked fieldstone, Danby marble – create a refined, warm palette. Outdoor spaces include a wrap-around porch, and 3 stone patios. The Guest Cottage is recognized as a legal 2nd dwelling unit, with a 2 bed, 2 bath apartment and a 3rd floor studio/office for a view from the peak. The ground level includes an oversized 2-car garage and a storybook potting shed. Work at home options are available in both buildings. Set on over 2 acres, privacy for the cottages is afforded with mature plantings and wooded areas. Garden beds are filled with perennials and the ultimate classic seaside beauty of blue hydrangeas. A quick walk to downtown or your club, yet a serene setting a world away from the bustle. At the bottom of the drive, walking paths lead to Thames Street, just 1/3 of a mile away, or just steps from Ida Lewis and New York Yacht Clubs.
