Chateau-sur-Mer


474 Bellevue Ave
Newport, RI 02840

Grand. Dark and fussy Victorian style. Love the woods. It’s built in 1852 for  William Shepard Wetmore. William died in 1862, leaving the chateau to his teenage children, George and Annie. Due to the close relastionhip with George Peabody, William named his son George Peabody Wetmore.

It seems the New York money went to Newport not the Bostonians.

And the moon gate: I’ve never seen a moon gate has stares around it.
