Check it out!! Perched high above the Pigeon River in Newport, this distinctive 3 Bedroom 2 Bath home boasts stunning river and mountain views! The flexible floor plan is highlighted by an outsized living room offering wood-beamed ceilings, a handsome gas fireplace with brick hearth and mantle, and an abundance of natural light through the large picture windows. The home's unique vintage characteristics include a number of built-ins: bookcases in the living room, a wall-to-wall China hutch in the formal dining room, large linen cabinet with two French doors in the hallway, and cabinets in the laundry/utility room. Dutch doors from the living room lead to a private study/library with brick floors and beautiful river and town views. A bonus room adjacent the kitchen could be an optional dining area, play room, or office. Other features include hardwood floors throughout most of the home, a covered and partially screened 3/4 wrap-around porch with marble flooring, and even a built-in cold storage unit off of the back porch steps. With a dose of TLC and some creative vision, this one-of-a-kind home has great potential to be restored to its former glory!

    Love the exterior’s rounded corners!

      Me, too, Cathy. And everything else about it and I can’t figure out why. Maybe the stone makes it look so organic to me, a natural part of the landscape. And then you get those unexpected windows and those banquettes/window seats in the kitchen. So much unostentatious uniqueness. I love it.

    Are those jalousie windows on the back? Interesting. Nice stonework.

    Gorgeous light in the dining room. What is the void over the bookshelves in the living room? Does it go through to the hallway?

    Really nice views and I’m a fan of the stonework. Looks like some nice woodwork under paint, and I’m always a fan of built ins. I suspect maybe it’s a bit older (10-20 years) than the listing states. Thoughts?

    The realtor is a tease! Don’t show the steps down to the stone basement and then not follow through with pics.

    Anyone else notice the original cold storage door in the last picture (bottom of the steps, left hand side). Would love to see a picture of the interior of that!

    What a ton of fun THIS place would be! I wish there was a more detailed photo of that built in in the dining room. Are those huge drawers? And that sweet L shaped seat at the end of the kitchen…perfect for all those people who want to tell you how to cook, but never offer to help!
    I love it!

    love this house—reminds me of a WPA-era Forest Service cabin.

    why are the drawers so long on the dining room built-in?

    Very cute house. Would have been nice if the porch showed was wider. Yes, and I’d like to see what’s at the botto too!
