c1865 ‘The James L. Hazard House’ is an extraordinary example of Newport architecture. Fully renovated and restored in 2013, this classic residence in the distinguished Kay/Catherine district has all the amenities that today's buyer seeks. The stately porch welcomes you into the sun-drenched foyer with cathedral ceilings, a grand staircase, and contemporary lighting fixtures. Working your way towards the expansive eat-in kitchen, you'll find high-end Viking appliances and a customized pantry with built-ins for extra storage; just off the kitchen is an enclosed office ideal for remote working and a large living room with a gas fireplace. In addition, there is a separate entrance with an in-law space complete with one bedroom, a full bath, and sitting area. Upstairs is the one-of-a-kind main bedroom: California Closets and a stunning bathroom oasis with a large walk-in shower and soaking tub. Nearby are two more bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a laundry area. On the third floor, you will find two en suite bedrooms, a sitting room between them, plus a bonus room —and, from the front of the house, a view of the famous Claiborne Pell Bridge. Additional features include whole-house filtration system, central air, efficient gas heating, all-new landscaping, a new blue stone patio, and a fully fenced-in yard. This residence won the prestigious Rhody Award for Historic Preservation in 2015 from the Rhode Island Historical Preservation and Heritage Commission.
