Discover the Enchanting History of Belair Gate Lodge

Located at the historic entry to Belair, one of the largest estates in Newport, you would be greeted by this charming stone building, the Belair Gate Lodge.

The building is symmetrically massed, 11⁄2-story and built of rough-face-granite-ashlar,
similar to the main house. This building can be classified as French Eclectic in style and
was designed by Newport architect.

Dudley Newton, who also designed the 1870 Second Empire renovations to the main
house at the same time for owner George Henry Norman. When the Belair estate was
subdivided, the gate lodge was sold off as a separate unit, and is now a single family

home, aka my dream home.

There is something so enchanting about gatehouses!
