MLS # 1196003 - Active
The last notably expansive oceanfront property in Newport, Seaward is an extraordinary 45+/- acre compound on Ocean Drive that commands a most prominent place among the grandeur of Newport real estate. Previously owned by John Jacob Astor and later by co-founder of the Tennis Hall of Fame, Jimmy Van Alen. Completed in 2008 over a 4-year period, extreme attention to detail was paid to every aspect of development including the use of granite from the property itself to construct the facade. Given its size and location, Seaward boasts complete privacy and mesmerizing views like no other. The gated entrance presents a striking yet welcoming preview to the exquisite open, spacious, thoughtfully planned, and impeccably maintained interior. The 7,000+/-sf Main House (49 windows) is adorned by a 3,000+/-sf Guest House (33 windows) and limitless views of the Atlantic Ocean and the historic Newport Country Club. The alluring seaside infinity pool overlooks 2 private moorings providing water access to secluded Prices Neck Cove. The ‘Pavilion’, a hallmark of this legacy compound, was specifically designed for events+gatherings to accommodate 1,000 seated dinner guests or a 2,000-person cocktail reception. Finally and rarely to be found due to Seaward’s strategic elevated location, one can enjoy both beautiful sunrises as well as mesmerizing sunsets high atop this magnificent estate. This signature compound offers an idyllic setting for memories to be made throughout generations to come.
