The Capt. Job Bennett House, c.1710, is a classic Newport Georgian colonial. With its eye-catching deep-red color and unique gable-on-hip style roof, it is a striking residence from the first glance. Located in the most charming Newport neighborhood where Thames, Bridge, and Cross Streets converge, surrounded by tree-lined cobblestone streets, abutting some of the most significant eighteenth-century buildings in Newport, and across the street from a National Historic Landmark pocket park, steps from the historic Cardines Ball Field, and just a few blocks from the vibrant downtown and the harbor. The home has maintained its historic charm with period details intact – magnificent wide, pine floors, a beautiful, dramatic stairway with original balusters and classic colonial 2-down/2-up wooden shutters. The living room is spacious and has an attached cozy study with built-in cabinets. A massive beehive fireplace/oven is outstanding and the focal point of the now-dining room with a pretty side pantry. The second- and third-floor living quarters are simple and charming as can be, each with its own fireplace. The house sits on a corner lot with off-street parking for two cars. An ample side yard and lovely brick back patio are fenced and perfect for entertaining outside. Stroll down Thames Street to enjoy the shopping, restaurants, and all Newport has to offer. This home is waiting for you to make a new chapter in its history.
