The Property

“Ayrault Carriage House,” built in 1928 for “Ayrault House” early in the limousine era, retaining the exterior charm of a historic carriage house with an updated classic interior. Ayrault Street was named for this property and voted #1 street to live on in Newport by Rhode Island Monthly magazine. Renovated in stages by a series of long-term owners, the most recent updates were completed in 2010.

The first floor layout is centered around an open plan with living, dining and a chef’s kitchen.

The centerpiece of the kitchen is the Viking range, with ample work spaces of honed black granite. A gas fireplace is situated for use of both the living and dining areas. An enclosed laundry room is off the kitchen and a den/bedroom and full bath complete the first level.

The master suite is a true retreat with a wood burning fireplace in the bedroom, a sitting/dressing room, and marble bath. Two additional bedrooms have built-in closets, drawers and a full dressing room. A shared full bath and half bath complete the second level.

Oversized south facing windows fill the living spaces with natural light. Hardwood floors throughout the house are of varied species including Santos mahogany in the living and dining area. The home’s gated oversized lot has over 12,000 square feet of lawn, patio, pool, fenced yard, professionally designed gardens and ample parking. A bluestone patio outside the kitchen is the place for BBQ, entertaining, or a play/pet space outside the gated pool area.
