PREVIOUSLY OFFERED FOR $3.75 MILLION. NOW SELLING WITHOUT RESERVE! Sited on more than 100 private acres in bucolic Newport, New Hampshire, this elegant estate offers refined living in a pastoral setting. Built in the 1880s by self-made millionaire and banking magnate Austin Corbin, the estate was constructed on the site of Corbin’s childhood home; indeed, he demolished the original structure, except for the room he was born in, and created this impressive estate around it. Extensively renovated in 1988 and 2005 by the current owner, the Property offers a modern standard of comfort and luxury, including a new elevator, central air conditioning, and professional grade appliances. Bordered by the Sugar River and offering views of Mt. Sunapee, the estate is extraordinarily peaceful, and is set within protected field and forest, ensuring privacy and impressive vistas in perpetuity. The Property includes the main residence and several outbuildings: a tri-level barn, heated workshop, detached gentleman’s library, and four-bedroom guesthouse currently in use as caretaker’s quarters are located adjacent to the +/- 7,500sf estate home.
Four bedrooms, four full and two half baths span interior of the main residence, and the remainder of the rooms are opulent and lovingly maintained; a great room with a gilded ceiling, reception hall with ornate fireplace, and modern kitchen with a wet bar and pantry are all cared for with an eye to preserving the history of the estate. Built in the Victorian style, the home offers charming details from the wraparound porch with blue painted ceilings to an ornate stairwell in the main entry. Although the estate evokes the feeling of a bygone era, it is situated only 2 hours from Boston and minutes from the heart of Newport, offering convenient access to the culture and recreation required by discerning buyers.
