The Former Home of the Award-winning Novelist Edith Wharton Found a New Owner, and You Won’t Believe What the New Owner Paid for the Estate
Another oceanfront estate is off the market, and you would not believe how historically significant the estate was. The impressive estate situated at Newport, Rhode Island, which previously belonged to the world-famous novelist Edith Wharton late and his husband late at the time, is officially sold and won’t be available in the market anytime soon.
The sprawling home, which is known as the Land’s end, was up on the market for a lump sum of $11.7 million.
The house couldn’t get the buyer who was able to pay for the historically important place and was finally sold to the close friends of the current owners of the house for an official $8.6 million as recorded by The Wall Street Journal.
The exteriors of the house
The house covers an enormous area of $5.6 acres and contains an 11,000 sq. Ft. Main house, which was built in the late 1800s. The historical details of the house contain original moldings, and a stone bench is present at the entry hall, which was also made along with the original building. Although other parts of the house were altered and were renovated and redesigned according to the time and mood of the buyers.
The house has a living room parlor with a cozy fireplace. All the walls of the house are painted butter green. The French doors are the real eye-catchers while touching the ground to the ceilings. When you open the doors of the house, you can see the vastly expanded ocean.
The interiors of the estate
The dining room presents a taste of traditional touch with parquet hardwood floors and a slightly unique peach-colored ceiling. There is a room which is dedicated to the collection of flowers which are picked from the garden. One of the important aspects of the house is that it contains more than eight bedrooms. Another amenity of the house is that it contains a saltwater pool, which makes the house heaven on earth.
Historical aspects of the house
The first owner of the house, Wharton, along with her husband, bought the home in 1983 for a rough amount of $80,000, which amounts to $2.3 million if we take into account its today’s value. Wharton critically liked interior decorations and minimalistic architectural touches. She, along with their mutual friend, decorated the house according to the couple’s desire while excluding the unnecessary details, which makes the house look even more lavish.
