PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A 3.6-acre private estate on Providence’s affluent East Side that was once considered for a subdivision has sold for $4 million.

Residential Properties announced on Thursday that it completed the sale of the William E. and Clara A. Bridgham Estate.

The real estate firm would not disclose the buyer’s name. The Providence Journal reports that documents filed in City Hall indicate the buyer is Object N LCC, a Delaware corporation with a Dallas address.

The estate features a 9,100-square-foot Spanish Colonial Revival manor house and a sprawling garden designed by Eleazer B. Homer in 1915. William Bridgham was a Rhode Island School of Design instructor.

Previous owners wanted to subdivide the compound into 10 lots last year, but the proposal was not approved by the Providence Planning Commission.
