Built in the tradition of the great English country manors, Gray Craig is an example of an expansive estate in perfect proportion to its natural surroundings. The setting for this remarkable home is stunning, 27+acres of lush landscape, dramatically extending to Nelson Pond with outstanding views of the Atlantic Ocean beyond. Of the finest structural design, built of textured brick and stone, the manor house spreads between its flanking wings a towering slope of roof. Proportion is the good breeding of architecture, and this expanse of space and unity with the land express the power of design. The grand hallway with a magnificent sweeping staircase introduces interiors of repose and distinction. The sense of welcome and comfort in an elaborate manner invites one into richly detailed rooms including an impressive library with a soaring barrel-vaulted ceiling, a formal living room with sweeping water views, a spacious dining room, a vintage conservatory, a handsome billiard room, and a gourmet kitchen with stone fireplace, custom hickory ceilings, and antique terra cotta floor tiles.
A perfect setting for lavish entertainment and a quiet country retreat for peaceful reflections, Gray Craig is set in the charming coastal community of Newport County, and is a haven of solace and privacy just two miles from the bustling Newport Harbor waterfront.
