The Property

The Lansing Zabriske Carriage House was built in 1889-1890 as the carriage house to the main residence at 90 Rhode Island Avenue by architect-builder John Dixon Johnston whose work included designing & building the famed Clingstone off Jamestown. Ideally located in the desirable Kay-Catherine neighborhood in a local historic district, walking distance to Easton’s Beach, Bellevue Avenue shops, restaurants & museums, & Broadway’s Restaurant Row. Grand oversized great room with almost 900sf features a decorative fireplace. Expansive eat-in kitchen (approx.

300sf) could become the gracious centerpiece of this entire residence once updated. Hardwood floors in the kitchen, great room, and three bedrooms. Wonderful historic whimsical details have been retained such as beautiful stained-glass windows, feed tubes for the horses, links upon which horses where tethered & more. Much of the residence’s infrastructure has been updated: all the windows being professionally restored (2021), new storm doors + windows (2021), house & garage repainted (2021), new roof (2020), air conditioning replaced (2019), alarm system (2020), & generator (2013). The extremely spacious kitchen & three bathrooms still need updating. So, the Buyer can imprint their style onto the residence & make it their own whilst owning a part of Newport history. The property also benefits from a detached 2 car garage with a separate workshop / storage area. Pre-Inspected with Inspection Report available.
