Hilltop, the childhood home of Newport artist, Richard Grosvenor, was commissioned by Theodore W. Phinney and designed by noted architect Richard Morris Hunt. Enter the circular driveway through a wrought-iron gate to an oasis set back on a hill and surrounded by a plethora of specimen trees on over three acres of undulating grounds in a private setting. The interior has the ambiance of a baronial lodge filled with intricate wood details and characterized by a collage of free-flowing spaces as one moves from one room to another. A picture window with copious leaded glass panes bathes the soaring two-story library with morning sunlight and is flanked by a grand tiger-maple-and-oak staircase leading up to the stunning second-floor landing. Features include oak timber beams and joists with carved cattails, rosettes, egg-and-dart, and intricate basket-weave design throughout the first-floor public areas. The dining room with parquet floors looks out onto the living room’s massive stone fireplace and has an exotic tiled Moroccan oven adorned with a bronze relief by the architect's brother, William Morris Hunt, and is currently being used as a digestif bar. It is only natural that the current owner and her late husband who had a passion for restoring vintage wooden boats would have a vision to bring the property back to life. Within walking distance to downtown Newport, Cliff Walk, beaches, tennis, golf, and yacht clubs, this hidden gem awaits its new steward.
