Italian Mansion Goes Over-the-Top With Marble and Gold Leaf Details

More

Location: Newport, Rhode Island

Price: $4,600,000

This Italianate mansion has enough marble, gold leaf, and French furniture to make a billionaire blush, but it's not some seaside mega-mansion. No, this is a relatively modest four bedroom, measuring just under 4,000 square feet. Aside from the fleeting glamour lent by the nearby mansions, this could be almost anywhere in New England, except for the $4,600,000 price tag. At least the next owner will be able to see exactly where the money went, let's just hope it looks as impressive with all the chintz and furniture moved out. At least they can't pack up the formal gardens and gracious pink pebble driveway.
