Text by Maria LaPiana
There’s water, water everywhere on and around this two-acre lot—along with thoughtfully designed indoor and outdoor spaces designed to take full advantage of—you guessed it: wonderful water views. The four-story, 5,160-square-foot residence sits next to Lily Pond in Newport, Rhode Island, a model of contemporary architecture in an area known for its elaborately decorated mansions. The floor plan is open; sightlines are unmistakably modern. The home’s details incline toward Arts & Crafts style, with more than a few Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired motifs. There are four bedrooms, four and a half baths, window walls, a grand spiral staircase and expertly crafted millwork throughout. An interior bridge crosses over the stunning infinity-edge pool that complements those aforementioned water views. There are separate guest quarters and beautifully landscaped grounds that include specimen trees and a meditation garden.The property is listed for $7,595,000 by Michelle Kirby with Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty in Newport, RI.
