If the nearly 10,000 combined square feet of space, elevator, and five-car garage didn’t make this listing luxurious enough, the home sits along one of Rhode Island’s most famous landmarks.
Sitting along Newport 3.5-mile Cliff Walk, 41 Ledge Road — also known as “Plaisance” — is a two-building compound overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The property’s 1.16 acres include 650 feet of waterfront with a private beach. The property faces west, making it an optimum spot to watch the sunset. Off of the water, there’s lush grass, rose gardens equipped with an irrigation system, and bluestone patios.
The estate’s restored main house and new carriage house were sold completely furnished. The former measures 6,500 square feet, with four bedrooms, four full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, and an elevator. Rows of large windows border the home, making it easy to see the water from most rooms, including the enormous great room and the dining room, which seats eight. The bedrooms are upstairs, including the two-bedroom master suite with a beamed ceiling, fireplace, and walk-in closet. A wood-paneled library with a chess table and plush red leather chairs is also on this floor.
The carriage house measures 3,200 square feet with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a five-car garage with both air conditioning and heating.
Kimberly Doherty of Lila Delman Real Estate sold the mansion for $9,400,000 on Monday, Feb. 24. According to a press release by the firm, the transaction was the priciest residential sale in Newport recorded by the state’s Multiple Listing Service since November 2017.
