About 662 Bellevue Ave

'Ocean View' is a spectacular ocean front estate located on the south end of Bellevue Avenue, one of Newport's most desirable locations. This historic property has been owned by one family for almost a century, making it a very rare opportunity. The oversized floor to ceiling windows provide unparalleled light and panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. The everchanging scenery between sea and sky offers everything from heroic sunrises to crashing waves during ocean storms. Currently configured as a family compound, the main residence is comprised of three separate living quarters. Each unit offers its own living space including a kitchen and primary suite. Separate outdoor living spaces include a patio and deck with southern exposure overlooking a sprawling lawn to the water's edge. A variety of mature specimen trees, beautiful shrubs, plantings, and flower gardens create a very stately feel. A charming carriage house cited near the entry offers ample guest living space, a private garden and a six-car garage. 'Ocean View' was originally built in 1866 for William H. Reynolds, in the Second Empire French style, which was most popular in Newport cottage architecture during this era. The house was considered one of the most distinguished of the mansard-roofed homes built in the 1860s. The architect, William Russell Walker designed this seaside cottage to capture the dramatic views of the coastline and the sea beyond.
