On the Market: A Jaw-Dropping Newport Mansion
This castle-like construction is perched atop the highest point in town.
86 Beacon Hill Road, Newport, RI
Size: 6,445 square feet
There are Newport mansions, and then there are Newport mansions. This sprawling estate for sale on the Rhode Island coast is indeed a sight to behold. Built in 1980 and recently renovated, the home looks like a modern-day castle, complete with an underground garage, a built-in pool, and masterfully designed grounds.
It’s perched atop the highest point in town, overlooking Newport Harbor, the Newport Bridge, and the wide-open waters of the Atlantic. Seven bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms, and a total of 6,445 square feet of living space comprise the jaw-dropping house, which is described in its listing as “Shingle-style meets contemporary.” Other eye-popping features include a series of decks and balconies, two fireplaces, a spiral staircase, and a sunroom.
A place like this doesn’t come cheap. The mansion last sold for $3.7 million in 2015, but the asking price has spiked to a whopping $7.2 million. Start counting your pennies.
