Situated on a rocky promontory overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this Gothic-style house was originally built for Frederick W. Vanderbilt. Doris Duke’s father, J.B. Duke, purchased the 39,000-square-foot house in 1922. Doris lived here from May through November most years beginning in the late 1950’s. Maintained by the Newport Restoration Foundation as a public museum, Rough Point displays the Duke family’s extensive collections of European fine and decorative arts, Flemish tapestries, textiles, Chinese porcelain and furniture and decorative arts from England and continental Europe. All tours of 12-14 guests are led by a knowledgeable guide.
