The majority of properties that were restored by the Newport Restoration Foundation continue to be owned and maintained as unfurnished rental houses. Rents are based on fair market rental values and range from one to six bedrooms in size. The majority of our homes are located in Newport, with one property located in Middletown and five in Portsmouth. The properties in Middletown and Portsmouth are nestled within NRF’s scenic Prescott Farm.
