Newport, RI (March 29, 2021) – Gustave White Sotheby's International Realty is pleased to announce the sale of 115 Pelham Street for $4,550,000. The seller was represented by Chris West, Broker/Owner of Gustave White Sotheby's International Realty, and the buyer was represented by Annamarie Ringheim, Broker Associate of Mott & Chace Sotheby's International Realty.

A testament to the power of the Sotheby's International Realty brand, the two firms were able to come together in this sale. "Swinburne" is an elegant Greek Revival home once owned by 19th-century Rhode Island State Legislator and Mayor of Newport, William Swinburne. The property, c1860, has undergone exquisite renovations offering modern amenities. Located on a sought-after street in the picturesque Historic Hill neighborhood.

According to data available from the Rhode Island Statewide Multiple Listing Service, the sale of 115 Pelham Street is the second highest sale in Newport County this year. Gustave White Sotheby's International Realty also represented the sellers of the highest sale in Newport County thus far this year at $6.5 million.

The Sotheby's International Realty network puts global connections and targeted reach to work. "My clients were looking for a home with both historic charm and an in-town location with walkability," explains Annamarie Ringheim. "I knew 'Swinburne' would be a perfect fit. The new owners will be great stewards of this Newport classic moving forward."

Chris West adds, "We are proud to once again cooperate with Mott & Chace and reinforce the success of our robust network of Sotheby's International Realty agents in Rhode Island."
