Beacon Rock, Estate of the Day
This Newport, Rhode Island home is a beauty with a long history. The home was built in 1881 for Edwin Dennison Morgan III, of the J.P. Morgan family and became a studio for sculptor Felix de Weldon, who created the statue of The Flag Raising on Iwo Jima. The home sits on three acres of rolling lawns and boasts beautiful harbor views. The home is an 11,000 square foot residence which has luxurious details such as gold brick domed ceilings and hand painted Gracie murals. The home is completely modern but the exposed brick and hewn beams show the original home's bones. The home has a lavish master suite and four additional en suite bedrooms. The property also includes a fitness cottage, landscaped grounds and a small pool. It is listed at $9.9 million.
