Swanhurst, Estate of the Day
The Swanhurst Manor House in Newport, Rhode Island was built in 1851 and was one of the first of twelve Newport Mansions established along Bellevue Avenue. The home was passed down over the years from mother to daughters in the Swan family before being willed to the Newport Art Association. The will said that the home must always be known as Swanhurst. The home is on 1.56 acres of landscaped grounds. The home has been kept true to its 19th century style and features a foyer with a classic stairway, a double living room, a formal dining room with a fireplace, gentleman's library, and a sitting room. The kitchen has been remodeled with granite countertops and new appliances. There are six bedrooms on the second floor including a master suite with a fireplace and new master bath. This home is listed at $5.6 million.
