1940's multi-story home situated in Newport on a hillside above the bayfront. 180' views of the bay, bridge and ocean, and walking distance to all of those in 5-10 minutes. Great family home, 2 bedrooms plus great spacious kid loft. The home is well-stocked, relaxing and cozy. Great for storm-watching or sunny days relaxing on the wind protected deck. A great home-base for adventures at the beach, walking, tide-pooling, surfing, crabbing, boating, watching whales or sea lions, kite-flying and sand-castle building to name just a few!
The main floor has kitchen, dining, breakfast nook and living room with Queen sofabed.
There are VIEWS from EVERY ROOM. Please see our photos, they are all taken from the various windows.
Kitchen is well stocked, gas range, fridge/freezer, microwave, coffee pot and grinder and all basic needs and small appliances. There is a larger 6-8 person dining table plus a 4-6 person breakfast nook table and leaves for both and dishes to serve 16 easily.
Main floor has a 36in LCD with cableTV, a DVD player and a chromecast. Visitors are free to stream their phone/tablet to the TV this way. So personal Netflix, Amazon, and other cloud services can be easily viewed on the TV.
There is free WiFi throughout the house. No land line but cell charger ports abound.
The house is wired with SONOS speakers for radio and music access that can be managed from your cell phone app and play different music in each room.
On second floor is the Master Bedroom: Queen bed, plus small 1 person or 2 kids sofabed. Treehouse views!

There is a large soaking tub and shower on the 2nd floor with bedrooms and a powder room on the main floor.
There is a spacious loft with 6 sleeping mats, stocked with TV/DVD/Xbox One/Computer and kid games. This loft has held 10 teenagers for a birthday sleepover easily (or so I'm told!).
There is a large deck with charcoal grill, dining table and lounge chairs. The deck is glassed in on 3 sides so you can enjoy those sunny days even if it is breezy. There is a small grass unfenced yard, and shrubs and trees filled with birds of all sorts, starlings, gulls swallows, even blue herons. There are binoculars and bird books in the house. You can hear the sea lions from the bay barking in all the seasons except summer when they migrate. We are situated right above the hospital and emergency room, they usually don't use sirens or keep us up during the night in the neighborhood but you just might get to see the Life Flight helicopter landing or taking off!
The house is loaded with games, books, linens, soaps/shampoos, and basic kitchen needs like spices and paper plates or baggies. We have information in the house with local activities, parks, lighthouses, beaches and restaurants. We are 5 minute walk to the bayfront with many restaurants and activities, 5 minutes to downtown, and 8-10 minute walk to the beach, 10 minute walk to Nye Beach area.
Parking for 3 cars in front of home.
Washer/Dryer access in basement with prior owner permission only.
We are continually working to improve this home. We fell in love with it despite the work it needed as a 1940's home. We are still remodeling the basement for rental at this time so only about 2000sf out of 3500sf of the home is open for rental. The basement will soon include another sleeping room for 4, a pool table, kitchenette and another 2 bathrooms.
Our family has enjoyed this home many times and have hosted family holiday dinners easily here. We hope you will find it as cozy and relaxing as we do, and we look forward to hearing from you after your visit!+ More
