A furnished seaside manor c1888 that seamlessly combines Victorian-inspired, 19th-century charm with modern, world-class amenities will sell “Without Reserve” to the highest bidder through NYC-based Concierge Auctions. Bidding for the Jamestown estate – previously listed for $3.495 million – opens May 17th. The auction will take place via the firm’s online marketplace in cooperation with Justin Gallant of J.E. Group Properties.
The historically rich estate nicknamed “The Boulders” – located at 52 Newport Street – was built in 1888 during the Jamestown construction boom by renowned architect Charles Bevins. The six-bedroom home includes an attached carriage house-style garage and a private guest suite on the second floor, with a private staircase and study. Additional interior elements include six fireplaces; rich wood accents; a sweeping staircase; and stained glass windows throughout. The included furnishings feature original artwork believed to be created by the famous landscape artist William Trost Richards.
Outdoors, the 1.94+-acre property comes with a sprawling patio, a balcony, and multiple covered, al fresco dining areas. The estate also includes a private beach with a lifeguard on duty in the summer, and a dock for launching small boats or kayaks.
Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey unveiled a new strategy Tuesday that she said will help the state’s 78 coastal communities work together to better cope with the challenges brought on by climate change.
“The city needs to revisit its zoning plan and put more teeth into its regulations and enforcement to favor livability over the appetites of developers and visitors. A vibrant city is one where people really live.”
