"Occupying the highest hill in Newport, Beacon Hill House was named for the beacons that were once lit at its crest." This 8,364 sq ft home sits on the original Beacon Hill House site, of the Arthur Curtis James Estate. Mr. James was Commodore of the New York Yacht Club, heir to the Phelps-Dodge copper mining interests, and Western railroad investor. His estate was the largest in Newport. The current Beacon Hill House, built in 1979, with nearly nine acres, on two separate lots, offers unparalleled privacy with views of the Newport Bridge to the north, and unobstructed ocean views to the south. The interior of this 5 bedroom, 5 full and one half bath home features an open kitchen/family area with access to wrap around deck. Designed for comfort and relaxed elegance, with spacious open rooms, including the living room with cathedral ceiling, dining room, library, office, and large media/playroom. There are fabulous views from every room. Amenities such as pool, jacuzzi, sauna, central air conditioning, 4 fireplaces and 2 car garage are additional benefits. The landscaped grounds are picturesque, highlighted by elements of the former James Estate, including the stone temple gazebo, circular pony ring and the fittingly grand driveway that winds along before reaching the house. The lower lot is perfect for additional structures for family compound. This private sanctuary and glorious site is one of the most attractive properties in Newport and all of Rhode Island.
