Wildacre  - The Luxury Oceanfront Estate of Billionaire Campbell Soup Heiress Dorrance Hamilton

Built in 1902 for Albert H. Olmsted, a Hartford Banker, Wildacre is an iconic Newport, Rhode Island landmark. The recipient of numerous prestigious awards and accolades, the estate is listed in the National Registrar of Historical Places.

A collaborative effort between San Diego Architect, Irving Gill and renowned landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted, Wildacre was originally created as a summer estate in the Hampton’s.

The striking residence includes a series of terraces retained by stonewalls that bow at the neck of the cove, shielding a magnificent infinity pool, which falls away to breathtaking views of the ocean beyond.

Located on a coveted stretch of Newport’s oceanfront in the affluent Price’s Neck Cove, the $15.75 million 8,180 sq. ft. 7 bedroom, 6-bath estate was purchased by billionaire Campbell Soup heiress, Dorrance Hamilton in 1997.

    WOW !! The home that Campbell Soup heiress owned is so reasonable ( at $15 M ) when comparing with some of the homes in Vancouver, BC Canada. On Point Grey Road ( known as the Golden Mile ) – Vancouver Westside, currently, a 50 ft frontage “building lot” is priced at $13M !!

    Another new home, still not completed yet ( been building it for just over 2 yrs in my estimate ) will have a market price of at least $25 to 30 M when completed and it’s on a 200 ft frontage – this home will be one of the most expensive properties in Vancouver.

    The property market in Vancouver is at a slow pace now and it is a buyers’ market at this time. However, I believe by late spring we will be busy again.

    Thanks for posting your luxurious listings!
