Description

Welcome to Champ Soleil. Enter through the gates of this private secluded estate, located just off the famed Bellevue Avenue. Newport was known as America’s first resort. The guilded age summer cottages were built by America’s most famous captains of industry, including the Asters, the Vanderbilts, and the Wideners, who wanted a summer retreat far from the city for socializing, throwing lavish parties, and parading their horse and carriages up and down the avenue. The dramatic entry hall, with black and white marble floors, leads directly to one of the terraces and garden temple. A cozy fireplace library with imported European paneling is located at the end of the hallway. Built in 1929, the estate is reported to be inspired by Lala Turn, which is located next to the Palace of Versailles. The step down formal living room has a marble fireplace and is facing South East, with french doors leading to the sun terrace and the heated swimming pool. An enjoyable and sunny sitting room with marble fireplace leads to a lavish dining room with floor to ceiling windows, crystal chandelier, and beautiful detailed parquet wood floors. A fabulous eat-in-kitchen features professional grade appliances, attached pantry, and period china room with glass front cabinets and a silver safe. The sumptuous master bedroom suite is located on the South East corner and offers gorgeous views of the lush grounds and gardens. Also included in the estate are 6 generously sized guest bedrooms, including the charming African room, which pays tribute to former owner Russell Aiken, a world famous outdoorsman and adventurer. There are 5 plus perfectly designed and beautifully manicured acres, with specimen trees, an original rose garden designed by previous owner Annie Laurie, mother of Sunny von Bulow. A special feature is the famous professional croquet lawn, anchored by 4 horse head statues. Enjoy al fresco dining on the outdoor terrace, a leisurely walk around the garden, or a relaxing swim in the pool, overlooking one of Newports most priced leaping beech trees. Newport is known for hosting endless summer activities, including the renowned the Tennis Hall of Fame week which occurs right after Wimbledon, a variety of sailing regattas including the Volvo Ocean Race, the Jazz & Folk Festivals whose venue is waterfront Fort Adams, where you can enjoy the music from land or sea. Newport, also known as the city by the sea, earned the name from it’s spectacular and scenic harbor. It is surrounded by wharfs with fabulous shopping, one of a kind boutiques, and world class dining. Enjoy a waterfront sunset from the deck of your favorite restaurant, or watch the endless parade of some of the worlds best known sailing and motor yachts, that come to experience Newport’s well known and celebrated summers. Champ Soleil is a wonderful and private estate, where you can relive the days of the Great Gatsby, in a modern and robust summer resort. Stay for the summer, with memories that will last a lifetime.
