Historic "Seaview Terrace" is perched atop nearly eight acres of seaside property along Newport's famed Cliff Walk. At over 43,000 square feet, Seaview is the fifth largest estate in Newport and the largest that remains privately owned. Built in 1907 for Edson Bradley, it was originally located in Dupont Circle in Washington, D.C. The home covered more than half a city block, and included a chapel with seating for 150, a large ballroom, an art gallery, and a 500-seat theatre. In 1923, Bradley began disassembling his Washington, D.C. mansion and relocating it to Newport. "Sea View", the Elizabethan-Revival mansion already on the site, was incorporated into the design, and lent its name to the new chateau. Rooms that had been imported intact from France and installed in Washington, D.C. twenty years earlier were moved again and reassembled in Newport, and the new building was constructed around them. The ALA awarded Bradley's architect, Howard Greenley, the 1928 President's Medal for the chateau. Seaview boasts many articles of virtu including "The Flagellation" (circa 1544–47) an early-Renaissance stained-glass window designed for Milan Cathedral. The Great Hall features a whispering gallery, an elliptical room reminiscent of Saint Paul's Cathedral, in which a person standing at one end of the foci can hear the slightest whisper uttered at the other. Long used as a dormitory, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to restore and preserve a true piece of history.

With 22 steps across a lush and private yard between them, your family can dance with ease between the two homes to suit your needs. First Floor Farmer Street: As you enter this exquisite home you are immediately taken aback by the hand painted, shell inlaid dining room completely lit by candlelight.

On the other side of the great room is a dining room which can access two additional outdoor spaces, a garden area and a porch. The piece de resistance of this property is the gourmet kitchen. The space offers shiplap walls, dramatic vaulted stained-wood ceiling and architectural lines that mimic the original barn that once stood in this space. The 12-person farm table is matched in length by the kitchen island topped with a single piece of wood found in upstate New York and the antique chandelier lowers and raises by an electrical switch. Lastly, this space offers a tremendous butler's pantry and multiple work areas. Additional features on this floor are a front parlor and a powder room that utilizes reclaimed wood from the original attic floor on the powder room's walls and ceiling. Mirrored sconces from Vaughan add polish to the rustic surfaces. A side entrance on the east side of the home offers a coat room while two staircases allow for easy access to the second floor. Second Floor Farmer Street: Three bedrooms are located on the second floor of this home.

Two bedrooms share a hall bath and the second-floor laundry closet is also on this level. The front room is immersed in natural light due to the bank of windows on the north side of the home. Twin Street:From the landing area, this leads to two bedrooms, a laundry room and full bath all anchored by a stunning master bedroom. The master suite is accentuated in pink hues and has a custom walk-in closet with his and hers sides and additional storage cabinets.

This space offers a comfortable living room, full bath and a walk-in closet area that leads to the bedroom. The roof walk can be accessed from this space and offers stunning views of downtown. Basement Farmer Street: The lower level of this home has a playful kids room, two additional bedrooms with a shared bath and an additional entertainment space that could double as a home office. A unique feature of the lower level of this home is the impressive workshop and storage room hidden in the back of the home. For ease of storage and stocking, this area has its own exterior access. Other Structures The stylish guest studio located above the one-car garage is perfect for extended family and friends.
