About 16 Thames St

A lovely and quaint condo alternative right in the historic heart of downtown Newport. Built in 1830, the house is said to have once been a light keeper's house and was later moved to its current location in 1870 and expanded to include the second bedroom. The history of the house is seen throughout in the exposed wood beams and wide plank floors. The fenced-in property has low maintenance garden beds and a patio with a gate that leads to the dog-friendly William Ellery Park...almost like an extension of the backyard! There is a full basement for storage and the property is not in a flood zone. Recent updates include a new roof installed in December 2020. Just a few blocks to Washington Square and downtown, the location is ideal for taking in the waterfront, restaurants and culture that Newport offers while also providing easy access to the Newport Bridge and Navy Base. 16 Thames Street is a special property perfect for those looking for a primary residence or a weekend getaway cottage.
