“The Ledges”, one of the most impressive estates on the East Coast of America, is the crown jewel of Newport’s seaside community. This spectacular home is ideally located on a 35-acre point between Bailey’s Beach Club and Hazard/Gooseberry Beaches. The property has breathtaking views from every angle; surrounded by pristine undeveloped land that includes a dramatic rocky coastline, private coved beaches, secluded treed areas, and sprawling green lawns and fields that flow naturally towards the rich blue Atlantic Ocean.
The 8-bedroom house was recently renovated but remains a testament to old New England charm. The interior of the house has ocean views from every room, featuring a magnificent living room, library, dining room, enclosed porch/dining area, kitchen and pantry and front hall with lovely murals painted by famed New England artist Howard Cushing. The upstairs can sleep up to 15 people comfortably, with three double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and 4 double bedrooms with access to three bathrooms. A single room, a unique dressing room adjoining the master bedroom and maids quarters are also located on the top floors.
Direct TV, air-conditioned rooms, WiFi throughout the house and an extensive library, all provide a relaxed and enjoyable stay. The property also has two full-time workmen and its own greenhouse with fresh flowers.
The Ledges is ideal for families and entertaining, its unbeatable location and beautiful picturesque views along with its extensive size, creates a justified sense of seclusion and serenity. It is the ultimate house for a peaceful and relaxing summer, an experience to be remembered. Rarely available for rent as historically its few clients have come back year after year, this special place is now available for the first time in seven years.
