5 - -7 Poplar ST, Newport, RI 02840  

This unique property between Newport's Historic Point and Thames Street neighborhoods, the Captain James A. Braman House, offers myriad possibilities with a 4 bed/4 bath main house and a 1bed/1bath cottage. The main house has been meticulously and attractively restored inside and out, while the cottage was rebuilt in 2009. The main level of the house has formal living/dining rooms, a library, spectacular chef's kitchen, den/bedroom and full bath. The 2nd floor has a master suite, sitting room, guest bedroom, office/kitchenette and full bath. Part of this level, which has a private entrance, has potential for use as income-producing guest rooms with a special-use permit. The 3rd floor has been renovated as a open plan suite with bedroom, bath and sitting room. High-efficiency gas heat, updated electrical and 4 fireplaces follow the updated/historic theme. Just across the 2-car driveway is the cottage. This charming mini-house has open living space, full bath, kitchen, a loft bedroom and separate utilities. Behind the main house is a generous backyard, surrounded by a kitchen garden, and bordered at the rear by an outbuilding restored to offer entertaining space, storage and garden benches. Though the “moon-gate� passage is a framed view and entrance to the true secret, a walled Japanese Stroll Garden with ponds, specimen plantings and seating areas to enjoy peaceful moments just blocks from our bustling downtown.
