Sweeping views of beaches, ocean and dramatic coast compliment the splendid interior spaces of Seabeach, a superbly sited estate on Newport’s famed Ocean Drive.
Seabeach is an early design by famous architect and decorator Ogden Codman. Its strong, symmetrical facade was heavily influence by Federal Style design. Perched upon a rise above the dunes the building is organized vertically to maximize its access to views of the sea to one side and views to the nearby pond on the other.
Tall Palladian windows bring light into gracious living spaces. Recent interior restoration has brought plaster walls; ceilings and decorative elements back to their original beauty. Throughout the first two floors, gleaming wood floors and eight marble and stone fireplaces accent Ogden Codman’s favored light classical style.
