Converting historic buildings into luxury homes is nothing new– a while back, we covered the budding phenomenon of converting landmark churches into luxury homes over on Castles Unlimited. This historic firehouse is every bit as creative, and highly coveted, with a price tag to match! Click any picture to view the full listing.
Redwood Hose Station 8 is unique in every sense of the word. This former fire station saw its last active duty in 1912 and is an incredible piece of Newport history. The stunning renovation features the modern architecture of David Hacin with a focus on green living and a commitment to historic preservation. Situated in the heart of the Historic Hill district of Newport, this modern, naturally lit oasis offers three floors of living with four bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Every aspect of the Hose Station 8 restoration and renovation has been thoughtfully designed for ease of living. Luxurious amenities include a ThyssenKrupp elevator that services all four floors, SONOS sound system with individual room controls, nine-foot windows that allow natural sunlight to flood into the house, 200 amp Tesla car charger, and geothermal heat with an 850-foot well that provides heating and central air throughout the residence.
In the Firehouse, you will enjoy 10- to 12-foot ceilings, radiant floors, sustainable woods, and a refurbished fire pole that will take you from the second floor straight down to the Club Level! Relax on the master floor with track doors that open up to a beautiful Ipe deck. Additional features include ADT security, August Smart Lock, Nest Camera System, generator, and master-bedroom steam shower and insulated air tub.
Redwood Hose Station 8 received the prestigious Doris Duke Historic Preservation Award in 2009, the highest compliment for any renovation and restoration in Newport! And for your guests, a very private space with two bedrooms, bath, and kitchenette. Truly a one-of-a-kind property where you can park your car for the weekend, be in the heart of everything that Newport has to offer, and return back to the serenity and quietness that the Firehouse offers.
