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.
