“Fire Station No. 1” is one of the city’s most iconic buildings located in the heart of downtown Newport and steps from all the activities that makes this City special. Historical details include original and functioning barn doors, brass fire pole, and a 65’ lookout tower. On the market for sale for the first time in over 30 years, this is an opportunity to purchase a one-of-a-kind building that is on the National Register of Historic Properties. “Fire Station No. 1” has approximately 6,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor space on 8 separate levels and an intimate, private roof deck perfect for entertaining with unparalleled harbor and bridge views. The impressive, arched barn doors open into an 836 sf. garage with 12’ ceilings and concrete, steel-beamed floors perfect for a collector of cars or art. Additionally on the first floor is a 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom guest area with private entrance, large south-facing windows, exposed brick walls and 12’ high ceilings and expansion possibilities. The second floor could be reconfigured as a 2-bedroom residence with fireplace in the great room and still enjoy the original wood beams, restored windows that allow for plenty of natural light, and the classic brass fire pole. The lower level is partially finished allowing for additional office space, a home gym, media room and storage. The use of the property is in a GB zone with offices and a dwelling unit. Architecture renderings available for a 4-bedroom, 3.5 bath residence.
