Want to live in a mansion, but don’t need that much space? This epic Newport domicile is your rare chance to fulfill that particular dream. Five units comprise the so-called Seaview Estates, which are a brief stroll to the crashing waves at Easton Beach and breathtaking views from the Cliff Walk. With its hilltop position, M-shaped roof, and stone turret, the building itself connotes the nautical grandeur you’d expect of a Newport manor—though at $770,000, you won’t have to shell out millions of dollars to live there.

And with nearly 2,000 square feet, this three-bedroom condo doesn’t amount to cramped quarters. A sunny living room with a red marble fireplace connects to a red-and-white kitchen, which flows into the home’s showpiece: a dining room alcove, centered by a golden chandelier, and surrounded by the dramatic masonry of the turret. Several arched windows encircle the space, casting natural light on the dish of the day.

The stonework continues up into the stairwell, which leads to the second floor where three sizable bedrooms sit. Two feature wall-to-wall carpeting, while one sports hardwood flooring and windows lining its semicircular shape. Perfect for admiring those ocean views from a distance, until it’s warm enough to jump in.
