Look Inside the $15M Newport Estate of the Firestone Family
New England’s hottest listing may well be the historic Firestone estate in Newport, Rhode Island. Properly called Ocean Lawn, the stately Queen-Anne-style manor has manicured lawns that look to roll all the way down to the Atlantic Ocean. It was built by the white-shoe Boston firm of Peabody & Stearns in 1889, but its most famous residents moved in during the 1950s—the best-dressed-listed Betty Parke Firestone and her tire-and-rubber tycoon husband Harvey S. Firestone, Jr. Ocean Lawn offers its next stylish owners nearly seven waterfront acres, glorious formal gardens and an expansive pool and terrace. It’s all yours for $15 million; listed with Melanie Delman and Lila Delman Real Estate International in Newport, Rhode Island. 401-284-4820.
16,237 sq. ft.
