Posted by Leslie Hogan — October 22, 2018
NEWPORT, RI – Hogan Associates is pleased to announce the October 19, 2018 sale of the Bois Doré Gardener’s Cottage at 128 Webster Street, Newport, Rhode Island for $2.15 million. This is the second sale of this property in the last 12 months. Caroline Richards of Hogan Associates was listing agent when Richard and Leslie King purchased the home in December 2017, and she re-listed it when the Kings decided to sell. Stacie Mills of Vanderbilt International Properties represented the Buyers, Mary Louise Cavanaugh and Robyn Holloway.
The single-family home was the former gardener’s cottage for the French chateau, Bois Doré. Built in 1927, Bois Dore included three charming single-family homes for live-in help. The cottage lots were later subdivided and sold. Renovated extensively in 2014, the gardener’s cottage has a new, open kitchen/living area and an elegant stone patio overlooking a private backyard surrounded by vintage stonewalls. The location is excellent on a leafy side street near downtown Newport.
“Homes with history, charm and a modern floor plan don’t last long in this market. 128 Webster had all three, so it’s no surprise it sold quickly both times it was offered,” commented listing agent, Caroline Richards.
“This house ticked all the boxes for a turnkey Newport cottage,” said Broker-owner, Leslie Hogan, “The market is especially strong for updated homes with romantic history.”
