"My Personal Baseball Field?" Top 5 Page for this destination The Elms Tip by cjg1

The Elms, Newport: 6 reviews and 22 photos

Well it certainly would have been if this had been my house.

My favorite part of the tour of the Elms is certainly the huge back yard. If I had grown up in a house like this I would have made my parents keep nine people on staff so I could always play baseball in the huge back yard.

The house was built by Edward Julius Berwind and his wife Herminie. Julius was a coal magnate so money was not an issue. This magnificent house was inspired by the Parisian Chateau d'Asnieres. The house has a magnificent marble staircase, beautiful furniture,huge paintings, Chinese panels and incredible tapestries.
