An Interview with 104 Wolcott Ave Property Developer Meet Sean Napolitano


With creative details inside and out, 104 Wolcott Ave is an impressive new addition to LKRE’s listings.  This 4 bedroom, 4 and half bath stunner is well appointed with gorgeous custom details such as a state of the art kitchen, beautiful gas fireplace, heated 2 car garage, crown moldings, and gleaming hardwoods throughout.  Listed by Kelly Powers, and offered at $1,199,000, 104 Wolcott has so much to offer you just have to come see it for yourself.

We got the inside scoop on this new construction in a quick interview with the property’s developer Sean Napolitano, owner and founder of A1 Roofing and Construction (est. 2007).

What are some factors you take into consideration when looking for plots to develop on?

The two biggest factors of consideration are location (of course) and utility availability. Next I look to see if the property has some defining characteristic that we can accentuate and incorporate into the design.

What can you tell us that is special about Wolcott ave?  What made you decide to build here?

Wolcott Ave sits in a very desirable location.  It is near First and Second beach, the Norman Bird Sanctuary and wildlife refuge.  It also includes the big perk of being close to downtown Newport.  I decided to develop here because I saw the potential to include a large home with 4 private ensuites, a huge selling feature for buyers at this price point.

What is your favorite space in a home to design/build?

Closets!  I love being able to use every square inch of a space and put it to good use.  I also like designing bathrooms.  We tend to go very high-end with our bathroom designs, incorporating radiant floor heating, detailed tiling, Kohler fixtures, and custom glass shower doors.

What is your favorite aspect about your 104 Wolcott build? 

I love the two inset decks off of the top floor space and bedroom over the garage (which is my favorite room in the house).  The deck off the second floor bedroom faces south, letting in ample sunlight throughout the day.  The top floor deck faces west, allowing for gorgeous sunset views over Easton’s Pond and the Newport Bridge.
