Posted by Lisa Babbitt — May 10, 2010
“Oakwood” is one of the finest in-town estates in Coastal new England with 5 acres of walled privacy, pool, lawn tennis and putting green, and a gorgeous park-like setting. Originally home to Mary Alida Asot, the estate combines the charm of yesteryear with today’s modern technologies and conveniences. In 1872, the Rhode Island architectural firm of George Champlin Mason & Son was commissioned to design the main living room and music room. In 1875, the Boston firm of Sturgis & Brigham added the clock tower and kitchen wing. The ellers completed a magnificent and thorough renovation of the estate. Asking price was $7,900,000. The estate sold at $6,000,000. Ann Conner of Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer.
