Description:

Midcliff is an iconic oceanfront estate that lies along 2 acres of Newport’s famous Cliff Walk and abuts "Fairholme" which sold for $16M in 2016. With over 180 ft of frontage and views of the Preservation Society's gilded mansions sitting along the Atlantic Ocean, the opportunity to own property in this location is rare. Peabody & Stearns designed this historic Queen Anne shingle style home in 1886 for Caroline Ogden Jones of New York. U.S. Ambassador Perle Mesta of Washington D.C, later owned Midcliff. During Mesta's time there she entertained such guests as Presidents Eisenhower and Truman and various members of the Vanderbilt family. Midcliff estate offers over 13,000 sq ft of combined living space with 12 bedrooms and 10.5 bathrooms. The main dwelling has 10,829 sq ft of living space consisting of 3 units combined with a total of 7 bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms. The detached carriage house offers an additional 2919 sq ft of 2 units with a combined 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (1st floor leased through March 2020). Midcliff provides ample space for a large family, guests and a caretaker, if desired. This classic property awaits a buyer to restore it to its former elegance. Newport, “City by the Sea,” offers residents exceptional dining, world class yachting, tennis, museums, and beaches. Estate Sale: Discharge of Rhode Island Estate Tax Lien will be obtained prior to Closing. Condo conversion for this Estate is a possibility. 40' boat slip available for purchase with property.
