Renovated Redwood Hose Station 8 / David Hacin


The imposing brick building started life in 1887 as a fire station in the Historic Hill neighborhood in Newport, Rhode Island. Redwood Hose Station 8 was an active fire station until 1912, after which the house functioned as an upholstery shop and then a triplex apartment. According to Rhode Island Monthly, in 2006 new owners realised that the building’s mortar was crumbling. A subsequent three-year renovation involved tearing the house down brick by brick and putting the home back together from the ground up. Boston-based architect David Hacin worked on the design, converting the sprawling structure into a livable three-floor residence with a two-bedroom guest suite. 118 Prospect Hill Street is now priced at $3,495,000 — via Curbed
