Stepping Into A Life of An Heiress by the Sea

Put this on your list of Top Beach House Finds to visit before you die. Rough Point the oceanfront home of Doris Duke in Newport., Rhode Island. Miss Duke spent a lifetime of collecting from exotic locations around the world. Located on Newport's Bellevue Avenue, Rough Point has a beautiful sweeping ocean view and is a splendid way to spend the day by the Sea. Rough Point is still furnished as it was when Doris Duke lived here. So the private tour is intimate, worth the upward price and you leave with an education and knowledge of what a preservationist, Miss Duke was to Newport, Rhode Island. Her passion for restoring Colonial buildings in Newport, Rhode Island led her to creating the Newport Restoration Foundation in 1968.
