Newport, RI Lila Delman Real Estate negotiated the sale of ‘Rockry Hall’, 425 Bellevue Ave., for $5.2 million. Alex Thursby, Lila Delman sales associate, represented the sellers.
Elegance and sophistication define this Gilded Age mansion on famed Bellevue Ave. Built in the late-1800s, the seven-bedroom home combines both Gothic Revival and Queen Anne style architecture as the result of a neighboring residence being attached to the property after a fire. The estate has been extensively renovated, now featuring a gunite pool and spa, “Christopher Peacock” kitchen, Niles surround and central air. The renovation allowed for the use of modern amenities while maintaining period detail.
“The allure of historic estates in Newport never wavers, yet it can be intimidating to an end user,” said Thursby.
“The sellers of this property went above and beyond with their renovations and created a modern home in a historic mansion. I am excited to have assisted my clients pass the stewardship of this beautiful estate on to the new owners.”
“Alex continues to be a rising star in our Newport office and Newport County’s luxury real estate market,” said Ryan Elsman, chief operating officer of Lila Delman. “She is incredibly detail-oriented and remains determined to see each transaction through to a successful close.”
According to data maintained by the Rhode Island Statewide MLS, this transaction marks one of the top ten sales in Newport this year. Additionally, as a firm, Lila Delman maintains the highest market share of sold property in Newport and Newport County across all price points and exclusive to $1,000,000+ transactions.*
