The Sanford-Covell Villa Marina is located in the quiet historic district, The Point. It is a perfect waterfront location with an amazing wraparound piazza which affords magnificent views of Narragansett Bay and the Newport Bridge. An article in the Boston Journal of August 9, 1870 calls it ‘the most elegantly finished house ever built in Newport’ and the house is now on the ‘National Register of Historic Places.’
An early work of the Boston architects, Fehmer and Emerson, this house is exceptional for its interior decoration in the Pompeian style. Irregular in shape, the house is excellently adapted for summer living along the shore. The surrounding open porches further establish the relationship to the sea.
The sunsets from the Piazza are a spectacular delight and this porch has become a virtual Newport Icon.
