36 Thames ST, Newport, RI 02840  

The lovingly restored 1746 Roas-Covell house has a rich history of inhabitants and guests. Alexander Hamilton is said to have visited this historic colonial on Upper Thames just steps to downtown with 10 rooms, 3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 4 working fireplaces and wide plank floors - a restoration with attention to historic detail, artistic sensitivity and practical renovation. Enjoy in-city living within walking distance to all downtown amenities as well as to the harbor front of the Point section. On-site parking, too. Many updates include newer heating and cooling systems. But the rare find is its “secret garden,� which extends deep into the lot - a quiet refuge for alfresco dining and entertaining with a covered patio and many perennials including Lenten Rose, Miss Kim lilacs, and the chocolate vine Akebia. Those who have lived here before include sea captains, the Stevens family stonecutters, Belgian lace makers and liturgical artist Ade Bethune. Come add your name to the list.
