Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty Sells Bois Doré

Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty is pleased to announce the sale of 115 Narragansett Avenue for $8,990,000. The seller was represented by Judy Chace, Broker/Co-Owner and Kylie McCollough, Sales Associate: both of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty. Kara Malkovich of Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer.

Selling for the first time since 2006, the gilded age home was built by renowned New York architect Charles A. Platt. “Bois Doré”, circa 1927, is gracefully sited on four private acres off Bellevue Avenue. Located five blocks from The Breakers, the home is designed in the Louis XVI style boasting a marble foyer entrance. Wrought iron and glass front doors compliment the timeless limestone façade and center the two wings of the home. An 85-foot great hall extends to either side, giving the space a sense of balance and grandeur. 

“This historic home is an architectural masterpiece steeped in Newport society,” says Judy Chace about the estate. “We are proud to have represented this iconic famed Newport Mansion.” 

The home is adorned with details such as Martin Battersby trompe l’oeil art, a style of painting in which objects are depicted with photographically realistic detail, and the largest ballroom of any private home in Newport. 

Kylie McCollough adds, “Once described as one of the last great houses built for Newport, this extraordinary property is a beautiful piece of Rhode Island history. It has been an honor to be a part of this home’s story.”

“A wonderful way to end a year full of exciting real estate,” says Ray Mott, Broker/Co-Owner of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty. “Thank you to all who have made this a year to remember.”
