Real Estate Details
Middletown, RI, United States
Villa 120, also known as ‘Villalon,’ is a stylishly restored 9 bedroom estate, ideal for Boutique Hotel conversion. Originally designed by the noted 19th-century architect Richard Upjohn and one of the first Italianate stick-style houses built in the United States, Villa 120 was built in 1856 as a summer residence for Hamilton Hoppin of New York, a businessman and scion of a prominent Rhode Island family. Converted to an Inn in 1984, the property is located just off one of the primary roads serving Aquidneck Island, and within minutes of downtown Newport and its wonderful beaches, historic sights and renowned dining. Insulated by mature specimen trees and plantings, the home and expansive front lawn and garden is a hidden and peaceful oasis in the midst of one of the most vibrant and popular vacation destinations in the world. The interior follows a symmetrical plan where the first sequence of rooms off the hall is the library and grand dining room framed by original mahogany paneled wainscot, deep scalloped cove molding and patterned white and red oak flooring. Currently the Inn is lovingly maintained for guests to enjoy its historic charm within the comfort of modern amenities. Sited on an over-sized 64,032 sf parcel and zoned R10, which presents potential for subdivision. With eight ensuite bedrooms, a modern kitchen and expansive great rooms flooded with natural light, Villa 120 would make a remarkable family compound or a year round fine event destination.
