*NOTABLE SALE* - Rockry Hall, Gilded Age Newport Mansion

We proudly closed out 2020 with the sale of 425 Bellevue Avenue in Newport. This elegant home was built in the late-1800s. Soon after construction a fire ravaged the mansion. When the home was being rebuilt, “Dellmain”, a neighboring Queen Anne was moved 100 feet and angled into Rockry Hall. The end result was a mixture of two period homes. The home has undergone extensive renovations so that it offers modern amenities, while maintaining period detail. This 'in-town' residence allows privacy while also being a short distance to the beaches, shops, Harbor, International Tennis Hall of Fame, restaurants, and Cliff Walk.
