Recently featured in Yankee Magazine and New England Home Magazine, "Snug Harbor," is one of the most iconic and beautiful mansions in Newport. Located on famed Bellevue Avenue, this elegant residence is sited on a prominent lot of nearly 2 acres on one of the most architecturally significant streets in the world. This Queen Anne style estate is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was designed by the renowned architectural firm of William Appleton Potter & Robert H. Robertson. Also known as "The Charles H. Baldwin House," the "summer cottage" was commissioned in 1877, and is featured in many important publications on architectural history. The home is a rare combination of traditional craftsmanship with modern amenities and an impressive square footage with an open floor plan. Sub-Zero appliances, central air conditioning and modern bathrooms with radiant heated floors complement the original marble and tiled fireplaces, grand oak staircase and great hall. French doors lead to the brick and stone piazza and an expansive backyard. A gunite swimming pool, clay tennis court, lush lawns and idyllic English gardens complete the private gated grounds. Tremendous additional value to this home exists in the 3000 square foot basement and 1700 square foot third story, which features a partial ocean view, cathedral ceiling and the potential for 5 additional bedrooms, a bathroom and second kitchen.
