Sandcastle, Estate of the Day
Many of the houses in Newport, Rhode Island are old classics but not this beauty. Sandcastle is a modern home which was built in 1991. Designed by Bill Burgin, the home has beach and ocean views from many rooms and includes deeded rights to a private resort beach. The first story features large open windows and floors of imported African bubinga wood in a Versailles palace design. The gourmet kitchen has granite counters and stainless steel appliances. The master bedroom has a fireplace, oceanfront balcony and a marble bath. There are three additional bedrooms with marble bathrooms. The third floor observation room has a wet bar and there is a lower level family room with a wet bar. The home also has an ocean-facing lap pool for workouts with a view. It is listed at $4.995 million. After the jump, if it were any closer to the water it would float.
