Photo by: Zillow The Atlantic Ocean is a stone’s throw from this Rhode Island mansion’s door. Honeysuckle Lodge, as it’s known, was designed by Boston architectural firm Peabody and Stearns and was built in 1886. The home, which epitomizes the Gilded Age, has nine bedrooms, nine baths, 10,275 square feet of living space and is situated on Newport’s famous Cliff Walk.

If you’d like to enjoy the ultimate New England lifestyle in an amazing location while surrounded by luxury, this 21-room mansion could be your dream home. It’s like having your own personal oceanfront retreat.

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.
