A pastoral 13.65 acre estate adjacent to Newport Country Club, near Fort Adams, New York Yacht Club, and Ocean Drive, Moorland Lodge combines total accessibility to some of Newportâ€™s most compelling summer pastimes with the bucolic charms of relaxed country living. This secluded compound consists of the historic, recently renovated, Mediterranean-inspired 17 room main house, a separate 2 bedroom guest house and a 3 car garage with a 2 bedroom apartment on the second floor, all set in a rolling natural landscape reminiscent of the coast of Cornwall.
The comfortable 6306 square foot stucco main house, with its imposing porte-cochere rooted in a massive rocky outcrop, puts to effective use such features as compass-top windows and a polygonal turret, and fearlessly incorporates a sweeping second floor bridge over the front entrance that blurs the distinction between outside and in. Eight bedrooms, 6.1 baths, several spacious family areas, a formal dining room, a second floor salon, 6 working fireplaces and a state-of-the-art kitchen make this house especially well adapted to entertaining, allowing family and guests to enjoy Newport at its unfussy, informal best. A hunting lodge ambiance informs the dÃ©cor, and the use of natural finishes throughout â€“ hardwood and marble floors, marble fireplaces and baths, animal horn cabinet hardware â€“ reinforces the theme and further underscores the rugged untouched beauty of the grounds. A grand house, yes...but one that never forgets that itâ€™s a home first.
A short stroll from the main house is a charming two-bedroom, 975 square foot guest cottage, with a full kitchen, dining room, living room and fireplace, a quiet get-away thatâ€™s perfect for houseguests or family members in search of a retreat. An additional two-bedroom, 1 bath apartment â€“ also 975 square feet - is located above the three-car garage near the front gate, and while it is currently being used for staff housing, it too could be suitable for guests, family members, or office space.
