Video of The Wyndham Estate | Newport, Rhode Island Mansion - Newport, Rhode Island, nucleus of the Gilded Age and home to the Vanderbilts, Astors and Wideners, has an opening in the birthplace of luxury - Wyndham Estate.
Wyndham Estate, constructed contemporaneously in 1890 alongside famed "cottages" The Breakers, Rosecliff and Marble House, is a resplendent, 2 1/2-story, ashlar stone Baronial designed by architect William Ralph Emerson, a cousin of Ralph Waldo Emerson. It was built for Rose Anne Grosvenor, a philanthropist from Providence. Newly restored, Wyndham Estate brings the era of opulence into the modern age.
Boasting 12,175 square feet and three floors of living space on 11.72 acres of property, Wyndham Estate sits atop the highest point of Newport - the crown jewel of a golden city.

Seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, nine fireplaces, tiger oak hardwood and white Carera marble floors, a brand new 456,000 BTU Buderus G315 boiler, library, grand ballroom, home theatre and manmade pond with a three tier waterfall are among the unique amenities of this regal manor.

Wyndham Estate lies in the very heart of Newport, Rhode Island, only one half mile from both the New York Yacht Club and Newport Country Club. Newport houses six elementary schools, Salve Regina College and the United States Naval War Cottage. It is home to the International Tennis Hall of Fame and the George Donnelly Sunset League, America's Oldest amateur baseball league.
