Charles H. Baldwin House is a historic house on Bellevue Avenue in Newport, Rhode Island. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, finished on the exterior in brick, clapboards, and shingles. It was designed by William Appleton Potter and Robert Anderson and built in 1887-88, and is an excellent example of a transitional style between the Queen Anne and Shingle styles. The building features the asymmetrical and busy massing, with many gables, an extended porch with turned columns, and brick chimneys with decorative tops. The house was built for United States Navy Admiral Charles H. Baldwin as a summer house.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.[1]
