44 Ochre Point Avenue, Newport, RI, United States, 2840
Formerly the home of one of America's wealthiest families, The Breakers is an architectural masterpiece and a canopy of long-standing history. Bathed in semblances of Beaux-Arts and Renaissance style, the mansion comprises a string of opulent rooms, a library, and an attic, among other things. An integral part of the Bellevue Avenue Historic District, The Breakers rests behind mighty wrought iron gates and is led by a tracery of pathways which slice through rolling, verdant lawns. These pathways, which slither along delightful gardens, are laden with a string of vibrant foliage including red maples, cedar, juniper, Japanese yews, and entrancing weeping beeches. The interiors of this mansion are adorned with effervescent chandeliers, intricately-designed capitals and myriad rooms which define sheer magnificence. Set amid a breathtaking setting of stark cliffs and clear blue waters of the sea, The Breakers tells myriad tales of the bygone glory of the Vanderbilts.
