Loved our tour of Kingscote. It was so much more personal than the huge tour groups through the bigger mansions. This house inspired me so much, I decorated my Living Room in my House after the Parlor at Kingscote

This small house is well decorated and encompasses only original artifacts which is unusual on Bellevue Avenue where many mansions listed their objects. The guided tour helps you entering the gilded ages and it is fun visiting.

This fine example of a 1841 mansion, was almost destroyed for ‘the sake progress’. Fortunately, it was saved and we can still enjoy the fine design and craftsmanship that this mansion represents. It is just lovely mansion to tour.

This is one of the smaller houses and it is unfair to compare it to the more opulent Elms or Marble House. It has small rooms packed with ornamentation and furniture so you'd want to come here in the morning, not in the afternoon when...More

The last one of the Newport Mansions I saw was "The Elms" and the main difference, apart from the Gothic Revival architecture, is that everything in the house was bought, collected, owned by the King family, who owned the house between 1868 and 1972. The...More

Small mansion but beautiful. Do take tour for more information about the mansion. The colour of this Mansion is so unique.
