    Description

    The Benjamin F. Downing House, in the heart of the Historic Hill neighborhood and on a lovely tree lined street is a residence with quality and graceful finishes and a floor plan that works for todays life style. This home is substantially larger than it looks. Open the burnished mahogany front door and Spread out over four levels of living space encompassing over 3,000 square feet with custom finishes throughout. Leaveyour car keys behind, walk into town for dinner, go to the movie theater or listen to Jazz on the Top of the Roof At the Viking Hotel. Plus, there is here the front porch that we all admire, the bricked driveway for two cars, a spectacular two tiered garden with blue stone hardscape, mature trees that rustle in the wind, a gas fireplace, koi pond and fountain. At night the lighting creates drama. Walk through the door into the house from the garden and you have an kitchenette with quartz countertops, sink and Subzero refrigerator that works both as your second kitchen or kitchenette for the extended family nestled in the guest quarters on this level. On the other three floors you have a Gourmet kitchen, a bar with wine storage, a pantry, multiple sitting areas with custom storage options, laundry room, surround sound, and efficient gas heat and central air. . The third floor entices you with a sitting room with skylight and those lovely yellow pine floors & a bedroom that overlooks the Newport Harbor in the distance. Enjoy a carefree lifestyle.
