The home is located in Newport’s historic 12-acre Bonniecrest Estate, a gated harbor front association, offers deluxe amenities including a swimming pool, tennis court, and a waterfront taxi to Bannisters Wharf for nights on the town. The 1914 Manor House, designed by Russel Pope for the Midwest banker Stuart Duncan, showcases intact period details, such as exquisite carved paneling, lead-paned windows, and original fireplace surrounds.
