This landmark estate is one of Newport’s grandest, renowned for its beauty and scope, with stunning architecture, artisan craftsmanship and exquisite grounds. Gracing four lots along the Big Canyon Golf Course, the estate – modeled after the famed Old Westbury Gardens Estate in Long Island – brings to life the elegance and charm of a bygone era, pairing it with the most modern amenities. Architect Diane Hussey, AIA and builder JC Dyer spent eight years creating an authentic Georgian manor house, with warm clay bricks and honey-toned limestone meeting dramatic counterpoints in impressive white columns and window mullions. The team then turned their attention to the spectacular interior architecture and entirely custom finishes – including many antiquities – while landscape architect David Tardiff created classical gardens to envelop the house in serenity. The result is an exquisite estate that proves that warmth, grandeur and modern-day luxuries can co-exist. The estate’s main house features 6 bedrooms, 6 and 3 half bathrooms and over 18,000 sf, with many rooms taking design cues from the White House and Buckingham Palace. Highlights include a grand dining salon, theater, chef’s kitchen, billiards room, fitness centre, children’s wing, sublime master suite. The estate also encompasses a large guest house, garaging for 15 cars, pool, spa, firepit and tennis court.
