Once the stately home of William Swinburne, a 19th-century Rhode Island state legislator and mayor of Newport, this 1860 Greek Revival home is now a renovated stunner in the city’s Historic Hill neighborhood, ready for its fabulous next life. Newly on the market for $3M, the 4,653-square-foot house is a gorgeous blend of original details and modern accoutrements.

Past the picture-perfect front portico, you’ll find a spacious entrance hall with checkered floors, an intricate staircase, and openings to the living room, formal dining room (each with a wood-burning fireplace), and a kitchen updated with stainless steel appliances and granite counters. Towards the rear of the house is a large family room that leads out to a veranda overlooking the yard and pool.

There are six bedrooms across the house, including a master suite (with a gas fireplace, sitting room, and marble bath) on the second level and two bedrooms in the attic. The property also includes a carriage house with a two-car garage and guest quarters above. Take a closer look, below.
