Enter a bright and airy renovated 19th century Newport beauty with a kitchen fit for a professional chef

Built in 1887, this Newport jewel measures 4,200 square feet (390 square meters). The home wasn't in the best shape when it was purchased by architect Gale Goff and her husband Peter, but the couple undertook a massive renovation that turned the home back into a thing of beauty.
The cheerful exterior of the house isn't as extravagant as some, but it's undeniably charming. One of the highlights of the home is the extensive wraparound porch, which can be accessed from every room on the first floor.

The sweeping staircase was partially painted white to lighten up the space, but the cherry wood rail was left its natural color. To the right of the staircase, there is a bronze radiator screen original to the house, making it almost 130 years old! The stained glass in this area is another beautiful touch.
The formal dining room is located just off the entrance of the home. Of course, it features a beautiful fireplace.
From this vantage point, you can see the double doors that lead out to the porch. Take note of the elegant period details in the room like the wainscoting on the wall and the chandelier hanging over the kitchen table.
You'll probably notice that the kitchen is much larger than you would expect from a Victorian home, and indeed, this was the one major change made to the house. This space was formerly three small rooms, but they were combined to make this beautiful kitchen.
These gorgeous glass doors were original to the home. Before the renovation, they were found in on cabinets in the butler's pantry, one of the rooms that were sacrificed to create the existing kitchen.
A large fireplace is the centerpiece of the living room, and it's flanked on either side by a door leading out to the porch. The storm doors are a new addition to the home, but they were designed to look as similar to the original doors as possible.
The fireplace was painted white, but the paint actually served to bring out the beautiful wood detailing on the mantle.
The den is illuminated by a large, southeast-facing bay window that keeps the room flooded with natural light.
In addition to the bed, the master bedroom includes a secretary desk and a cozy love seat perfect for curling up with a good book. Of course, the room also features a beautiful fireplace to keep the space warm on chilly winter nights!
