A Gilded Age mansion in Newport, Rhode Island, that was inspired by 18th-century French architecture has just sold in an eight-figure deal.

Never publicly listed, the oceanfront home, named Miramar, changed hands last week for $27 million. The deal marks the second-highest sale in Newport County, and is bested only by last month’s sale of the nearby Clarendon Court, according to listing records with Zillow and Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty, the brokerage which handled the sale.

Its lavish interiors are fitted with soaring ceilings, ornate cornicing, murals and stately fireplaces.

Plus there are marble floors, oversized windows, a wine cellar and ocean views. And elsewhere on the estate are tennis courts and a seven-bedroom carriage house.,50157837.html,50158115.html
