The original Peabody & Stearns design holds through to today’s buyers, displaying superb detailing while allowing for a comfortable lifestyle. I’m so happy to have represented the sellers for this luxury home transaction, the highest sale occurring in Newport County since we represented the sellers on the sale of a four-plus-acre property on Indian Avenue last August.”
