In the mid-nineteenth century the Upper Cliffs area was home to many small rental cottages, such as those of the Cliff Cottage Hotel Association (1860s), at the head of Cliff Avenue, or this set of summer rental units built by Cazeau and Elizabeth Pinard in the fashionable style of the early 1880s. Although alterations have occurred, the exteriors still clearly show the shingle idiom in a repetition of undercut porches, picturesque window treatments, and decorative patterns organized under a dominant gable roof. Of the six separate units eventually built on this site, only four remain, having been rehabilitated as condominiums in 1982 by a local firm, The Newport Collaborative.
