I'm always a sucker for the old homes in Newport, Rhode Island. Another beauty has hit the market. This one hasn't been on the market in over 30 years. It has a Peabody and Stearns estate circa 1896 and is located along Newport's famous Cliff Walk. The home is on over two acres of Olmstead-designed grounds including wide green lawns sweeping down to the ocean's edge. The property includes a main residences as well as a two-unit carriage house. It has a modern gourmet kitchen but much of the rest of the house is rooted in its exquisite past. Graceful touches include a wide, curving staircase, padded window seats facing the ocean view, and stately columns. This one is listed at $12 million.
