Estate of the Day: $4.6 Million Italianate Villa in Newport, Rhode Island


Situated off famed Ocean Drive, this rare turn-of-the-century Italianate villa ($4,600,000) features a classic Palladian layout with a dramatic center staircase in the front hallway with Calacatta Oro marble floors. Two identical drawing rooms with matching Louis XV marble mantels lead out to graceful terraces with colossal Tuscan pier-and-columns. Entry into this very private estate is through massive iron gates along a serpentine driveway lined with pink pebble stones. Majestic griffons greet guests and stand guard over the pediment at the main entrance.
