$1,295,000 | 1855 | 3,681 Sq. Ft. | 6 Beds | 4 Baths | 0.09 Acres
7 Bull St, Newport, RI 02840

The Isaac & Lydia Reed Spooner Jr. is a grand three story mid 19th century Victorian with lovely ornate detailing. It is the oldest of the other Victorian homes that line Bull Street. Built as a single family in the 1850’s, 7 Bull is currently configured as a 3 family but could be converted back to a single family. The brick driveway accommodates parking for one + car. The property has a compact rear garden. An inviting teak front porch offers the perfect vantage point to catch up with neighbors as front porches were designed for. The roof is less than 3 years old, there are replacement windows throughout, three oil heating systems, separate hot water tanks and four electrical panels ( one for the house) make this property very efficient to manage.

There is a full basement that serves well for storage. Bull Street starts at Spring Street and is part of the popular Broadway Restaurant Row and ends at Kay Street – and from there Historic Bellevue Ave. The first floor apartment has 3 bedrooms, (two on the first floor) two baths, a formal dining room, a home office and a living room with marble fireplace with a wood stove insert. At the rear, off the kitchen is a versatile garden room. The second-floor two bedroom one bathroom apartment has newly installed laminate floors and an updated kitchen. The third-floor unit, nestled under the eaves, is a cozy one-bedroom, one-bath furnished unit with basement laundry. All three units have a strong rental history.
