Enter through the well known white-brick arched gatehouse to . . . NORMANDIE.
First time offered to the market since 1972 and considered by many to be one of the most iconic and desirable estates and locations in all of Newport, ‘Normandie’ is privately situated on 4.4 oceanfront acres with several access points for swimming from your own private beach. This bungalow-style residence, designed by the noted architectural firm Delano & Aldrich of New York City, boasts many original details: red-quarry tiled flooring, Beechwood-paneled interior walls, beautiful curved dining room ceiling, and a variety of mantel places in its 10+ fireplaces. Main house has seven principal bedrooms each with their own fireplace and ensuite baths. The entry level principal suite has access out to patio and grounds. East wing of the house has a two bedroom apartment and an additional one bedroom apartment. Gate house at the entrance on Ocean Drive includes guest quarters along with garage/utility space. Most definitely, a once in generational opportunity to own a true Newport masterpiece.
