The iconic Slocum estate on famed Bellevue Avenue, occupies an entire Newport city block with additional driveway access via Coggeshall Avenue. Designed by Newportâs own, renowned architect Dudley Newton, the manor house was constructed of locally quarried granite and is trimmed in brown stone with a magnificent slate roof. The almost 5-acres of Olmsted designed grounds is breathtaking and rare with charming serpentine gravel paths featuring beautiful specimen trees such as massive beech, oak, maple and butternut. Original intricate period detail, elegant decorative elements, exquisite craftsmanship and multiple fireplaces grace the rooms. While resplendent with grand and gracious rooms for awe and entertaining, the home is welcoming and comfortable. This is the first time the home will be sold outside the original family.
