Tew Brothers House // 1845

This Greek Revival house in Newport was built in 1845 for the Tew Brothers. The home was likely a double-house with two doors for each family, as the current entry looks to be of a more recent vintage. The house features a full-length columned porch which has small brackets in the eave, an early nod to the emerging Italianate style. The property was recently renovated and sold for just over $1 Million. Talk about a steal!

    I believe it was a member of the Tew family from southern New England who built what became known as the Hemingway house in Key West as well. It was a family of seafarers & salvagers.
