A rare opp to own in Beechbound, designed by the architectural firm of Peabody & Stearns (1895), it is Newport's premier harbor-front condominium estate. Stately & grand, it's sited on 3.77 acres of Olmsted designed grounds featuring magnificent beech trees and cascading lawns overlooking picture perfect Brenton Cove and Narragansett Bay. Beechbound's impressive mahogany entrance opens onto a sweeping 1,325 sq. ft. stone (shared) loggia overlooking the harbor w/ Sunset views. This lovely 1st flr unit is in the Manor House, which was once the private home of a Gilded Age tycoon, and is now div. into 7 indiv. residences. The unit exudes a calm sophisticated style throughout its spacious living area w/ new central AC, lighting and a fresh paint job. A particularly stunning wood-paneled and coffered-ceiling “Great Room,” (once the original home's dining room) also has direct access to the loggia. A sensational high gloss cabinetry eat-in-kitchen leads outside to its own private garden deck. Two large bedrooms en-suite surround the cozy den, and two FPs complete the serene scene.
