As one travels down the private, wooded walk, it is easy to forget that this week’s luxury home pick is in bustling Newport, RI.
25 Bowery St., also known as “Merrillton,” is an Italianate villa built in 1849 and completely renovated and restored in 2013. The home combines a main house and cottage, offering a total of eight bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, and two half bathrooms. With an $8,000,000 price tag, it measures 9,069 square feet — including a 1,500-square-foot finished lower level. Stacie Mills of Vanderbilt International Properties has the listing.
The main house has an air of grandeur, with spacious reception rooms, large chandeliers, wide arched doorways, and an elevator. One of its four floors is dedicated to an owner’s suite with a study, sitting rooms, and separate bathrooms. There are four more en-suite bedrooms on the mezzanine and third floors, as well as billiards and movie rooms on the finished lower level.
Over in the cottage, there are three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, one half bathroom, a library, a dining room, and a kitchen. Outside, an infinity pool punctuates the 2.27-acre parklike grounds.
