Welcome to Merrillton, a magnificent Italianate Villa designed and built by Samuel Powel during the Gilded Age. The estate was completely renovated and restored in 2013. The private estate is tucked into a parklike setting with an impressive number of specimen trees and private wooded walk. This fully furnished eight-bedroom architectural treasure features a main house and cottage under the same roof. The main house features generous reception rooms, a Chef's kitchen, a full floor owner's suite with study and siting rooms plus separate bathrooms. In addition there are four en suite spacious bedrooms located on the mezzanine and third floors. Elegant billiards and cinema rooms are located on the lower level. All four floors of the main house are serviced by an elevator. The "Cottage" area of the home includes three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, including a master en suite bedroom. In addition to the bedrooms the Cottage includes a formal library/den, dining room and kitchen. The restoration includes a discreet pebble tech infinity swimming pool in keeping with the historic nature of the property. The private grounds give the feel of being out in the country instead of in the middle of Newport. Taxes and assessments have been reduced by previous owner donating outlying property to Aquidneck Land Trust with no public access. This estate is being sold fully furnished with some buyer owned exceptions.
