About Maura Lindsay

Having moved to Newport over 18 years ago, I am still in awe of the beauty of this city by the sea. No matter where I travel in the world, I always feel a sense of peace and calm as I drive over the Newport Bridge.

Connecticut is where I was born and raised. My family spent many summers in RI, primarily in Weekapaug. Yet, we regularly visited relatives in Jamestown and I can recall my first visit to Newport via Ferry ( prior to the Newport Bridge). Of course, I was in awe of the beauty and history of Newport. And, I feel blessed to find myself living here today.

My husband Tom ( an MD ) and I live here with our 2 West Highland Terriers

( Rexy and Oscar) and a Perisan cat named Winston. We love animals and are open to considering allowing your pet to stay with you. Although, we reserve the right to deny it under certain circumstances.

My husband practices medicine in MA and I started a business two years ago following my passion for antiques and interiors. Tresor is the name of my fine consignment shop and estate sale business. It is located conveniently .5 mile from our house at 134 Spring St at the corner of Church St. Stop in an visit when you are walking downtown. Or, visit my website at www.tresorestatesales.come to find out a bit more about us.

This property is beautifully situated in an elegant, quiet neighborhood yet is convenient to so much.

We love this street......you'll see why!
