When a house comes with its own name, you know you're doing something right. Perched atop Newport's iconic Cliff Walk with dramatic sweeping views of the Atlantic sits Land's End. Designed by architect John Sturgis in the late 1800s, this beyond gorgeous Gilded Age home has just been listed for $11.7 million. A not so heavy price tag considering it's one of Newport's most divine residences and comes with quite the history, having been owned by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edith Wharton, Heads of State and, in later years, Grand Dame Marion “Oatsie” Charles.
A property fitting of such noble pedigree, the 5.6 acre estate is comprised of an 8 bedroom manor house, carriage house with 3 car ports and 3 bedroom guest quarters, perennial garden spaces, and a saltwater gunite pool. Click through for a look inside the unbelievable mansion.
