    In this April 16, 2019, file photo, real estate agents leave a home for sale during a broker open house in San Francisco.

    The Rhode Island mansion once owned by Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Edith Wharton is on the market for nearly $12 million.

    The Providence Journal reports that Land's End in Newport, where Wharton and her husband lived in the late 19th century, is for sale at $11.7 million. It was more recently owned by socialite Marion Oates Charles, who died there in December.

    The 24-room mansion on a 5.6-acre estate was built in 1880. It's located on a street that runs between two of the city's most famous thoroughfares, Bellevue Avenue and the Cliff Walk.

    Kendra Toppa, the listing agent, said the property "truly epitomizes Newport real estate at its finest.''
