Stacy House is one of the original and authentic colonial homes in the Point Section of Newport. It was built in 1725 and moved to this site between 1850 and 1855.

Between 1950 and 1951, the then owners, the Little family, built a three apartment building in the back yard of the Stacy House property. I purchased the property from the Little family in May 1978.

This large four room, second floor apartment has been recently through a complete renovation including complete electrical upgrade and new heating units. The goal of this renovation was to make this a very comfortable 'executive' type apartment for one person or a couple.

The current tenant has been enjoying the apartment for three years. He is being transferred with the military. The apartment will be available by June 1, 2015.

The rent includes heat, water, and hot water. Appliances are included. There are laundry facilities available in the building. There is off-street parking for one automobile plus a very private yard.

This apartment is ideal for an executive type person, military officer, or retired individual. The rental on a year round basis is $1,175 per month for one person.
