Located on Newport’s famous Cliff Walk, the home offers incredible sweeping views of the ocean — and the other neighboring mansions. Known as Honeysuckle Lodge, this gated estate is the epitome of a Gilded Age home. Designed in the late 1800s by Boston architectural firm Peabody and Stearns, the home features a stunning entrance with grand stairway, huge fireplace and great hall with coved ceiling.
Even from inside the home, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the benefits of the unique location. The home is filled with bulls-eye windows and other wall/window openings that serve as great vantage points to the outdoors scene. All of the main rooms also provide great views of the coastline.
In addition to the main home, there’s also a 4,000-square-foot carriage house containing a greenhouse, garage and two apartments.
