The private home of Newport’s most famed native architect, George Champlin Mason, has recently hit the market for $4.5 million in Newport, Rhode Island. Mason, whose works include The Eisenhower House, Chepstow, and the Naval War College, constructed the home in 1873 and currently runs as a boutique hotel. Aptly named “The Architect’s Inn” it features 11 ensuite guest rooms, innkeepers accommodations, and a modern commercial kitchen. The main level of the mansion has been meticulously restored and offers a library with a wood-burning fireplace, a large formal dining room serviced by a butlers kitchen, and a parlor that opens through double doors to a gracious covered porch. Impressive design elements include an elaborate gable-ended porch, Swiss chalet-style filigree wood trim, carved fireplace mantles, and intricate parquet flooring. The tranquil grounds are comprised of lush gardens, a terrace for alfresco dining, and beautiful specimen trees. This piece of Newport history is on the market for $4.5 million with Kylie McCoullough of Sotheby’s International Realty. Photography and information found on agent’s listing.
