The Taylor Mansion, formerly known as Bellevue, is a 6,972 SF building situated on a 0.430 acre parcel in Newport, Kentucky. The beautifully appointed home is being offered with all current furnishings, some of which are believed to be antique. The property is seen by many as the most historical home in Northern Kentucky and is listed with the Newport Historical District and the acclaimed Iconic Mansion Hill National Register.  The Mansion holds great significance, as it was originally built for James Taylor V, one of Newport’s prominent founders. This landmark property was originally constructed in 1837 in the Greek Revival Style and is one of the few Newport buildings of its kind still around today. The home was reportedly designed by Benjamin Latrobe, who also designed the United States Capitol building in Washington, D.C. The property is said to have been subsequently remodeled in 1980 and, while no blueprints exist, the interior and exterior walls on the first and second floor are guessed to be 18 to 24 inches thick of solid brick with the basement walls purported to be 30 inches of stone. The property features significant architectural design including unique oversized crown moldings, detailed stain glass windows, numerous intricate chandeliers, and impressively sized rooms, some with ceiling heights over 17′.  In its most recent years, the mansion has been used as  a commercial office space, offering extra large executive offices, meeting rooms, and conference areas. The property benefits from being centrally located within walking distance of Newport’s revitalized arts and entertainment district, Covington and downtown Cincinnati.
