Newport’s Beechbound Estate Condominium Association is a late 19th century take on an ancient Scottish castle: a carved granite and shingle three-story fort. It was designed as a single-family dwelling by the famed architectural firm Peabody & Stearns for the Burden family of Boston, and converted in the mid-1970s into seven condominiums.
The Beechbound property includes four additional waterfront townhouse condos built in the 1970s, a newly refurbished boathouse, and a private dock that provides access to Newport Harbor and moorings via the NYYC and Oldport launches. The historic estate also provides residents a glimpse into the Olmstead era, as its grounds were originally designed by Frederic Law Olmstead, the formidable landscape designer of New York’s Central Park. The entire property is now a private and secure gated compound.
Unit 2, on the ground floor, has private direct front door access to the unit’s foyer, near its assigned parking spaces. Its “Great Room,” the mansion’s original dining room, has been restored to its original splendor with its original 1895 paneling, parquet floors, tapestry, and coffered ceiling. The Master and Guest bedrooms, their en-suite baths, and the sitting room and kitchen were recently completely modernized.
Today’s owners revel in the property’s history and Newport harbor views. The north side of the Manor House, facing the water, features a sweeping 1,325 sq. ft. shaded stone patio with spectacular open views of the harbor and the beautiful Pell Bridge, and side views to picturesque Brenton’s Cove.
