NEWPORT – The historic neighborhood, The Point, in Newport recently had its highest residential sale in two years.
The Bigelow Carriage House, at 79 Second St., sold for $1.68 million, according to a news release. It was an early commission of architect Charles McKim, who designed the original Pennsylvania Station in New York, the West Wing of the White House and the Boston Public Library in Copley Square.
The shingled exterior of the carriage house is nearly identical to its original 1848 design. The interior was remodeled in the past decade.
The property sellers were represented by Judy Chace, broker and owner of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty, and Eric Kirton, sales associate. The buyers were represented by Jay Serzan of Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty.
