The John W. Bigelow Carriage House, an early example of the American Shingle Style, was designed by architect Charles F. McKim, one of the founders of the architectural firm McKim, Mead and White that gained prominence during Newport's Gilded Age. The residence was thoughtfully renovated in 2005 by Newport Collaborative Architects. The sun-filled living room with its large stone fireplace opens to a southwest-facing bluestone patio. The chef's eat-in kitchen has a large pantry and features upscale appliances and appointments. Off the kitchen is a mudroom leading to a small porch. The office with fireplace on the first floor can double as a den. The second floor features a large, sunny primary bedroom with private bath. There are two more bedrooms with en suite baths. The third floor has two additional bedrooms with a shared bath as well as a lookout tower. Located in Newport's historic Point section, it is just a minute to the waterfront and Battery Park and a short walk to downtown Newport.
