A classic Newport cottage comes attached to a funky 1 plus bedroom in this “Vermont farmhouse meets SoHo loft” property on The Point, located 3 blocks from the bay, there are fog horns, but no flood insurance required. The “Ice House” loft was completely rebuilt in 2000, from the restored foundation with new sills to a new dormer to make room for a full bath. The boat-inspired kitchen features a butterfly corner sink and a large eat-in counter. A large set of built in drawers was added to the bedroom, and built in cabinets were added to the loft, which also has a big walk-in closet and a window seat next to a built-in bookcase. The front house has been improved with a full bath on the first floor, a laundry room off the kitchen and new kitchen counters and cabinets which compliment the original built-in, glass front cabinets. The fenced in yard is dog friendly, and each unit has it’s own patio. A stone raised bed runs along the front of the Ice House and a small deck with an outdoor shower is located in the back. There are two off-street parking spots and the house is located on a quiet dead-end street with additional on-street parking. This property offers very flexible options for those either looking to earn rental income by living in one unit and renting out the other, or by renting out both units. Also there is potential to reconfigure the layouts and make this a truly epic single family on the Point.
