"Snug Harbor,” one of the most iconic and beautiful mansions in Newport, Rhode Island, is being publicly offered for the first time in over 70 years. Located on famed Bellevue Avenue, this elegant residence is sited on a prominent lot of nearly 2 acres on one of the most architecturally significant streets in the world. This Queen Anne style estate is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was designed by the renowned architectural firm of William Appleton Potter & Robert H. Robertson. Also known as “The Charles H. Baldwin House,” after the US Navy Admiral for whom the “summer cottage” was commissioned in 1877, it is featured in many important publications on architectural history. The home is a rare combination of traditional craftsmanship with modern amenities and an impressive square footage with an open floor plan. Sub-Zero appliances, central air conditioning and modern bathrooms with radiant heated floors complement the original marble and tiled fireplaces, grand oak staircase and great hall. French doors lead to the brick and stone piazza and an expansive backyard, ideal for hosting large gatherings. A Gunite pool, clay tennis court, lush lawns, and idyllic English gardens complete the private gated grounds. Tremendous additional value to this home exists in the 3,000 sq ft basement and 1,700 sq ft third story, which features a partial ocean view, cathedral ceiling and the potential for 5 additional bedrooms, a bathroom, and second kitchen.
