On Monday, Residential Properties Ltd. announced the sale of 57 Second Street in Newport for $2,625,000. RPL Sales Associate Lisa Pisaturo represented the buyer as the selling agent in this transaction.
Recently re-landscaped, this turnkey jewel is just two blocks from Newport Harbor and a short stroll to casual restaurants and unique shops. Built in 1850, the Merritt House has been renovated with a light-filled, open floor plan, high ceilings, and white and red oak hardwood floors. A stunning reclaimed-wood island elevates the cook’s kitchen, along with an Aga Stove, wet bar, and banquette with a gas fireplace. The dining area can comfortably seat eight, while the living room offers built-in shelves, an additional fireplace, and French doors opening out to the manicured yard. A rare bonus for a historic home of this period, a first-floor ensuite bedroom and a powder room with laundry lend extra comfort, ease, and style. The second-floor primary suite includes an ensuite bath, office, and multi-purpose space with a built-in bed nook. The guest cottage continues the luxurious allure with a kitchenette, bath with penny tile, and a bedroom with a cozy seating area.
