Olympic figure skater Michelle Kwan has sold her Rhode Island estate for $3,999,000

The Newport property, named Casa del Sole, is a Palladian-style villa originally built in the early 20th century, according to a press release from Gustave White Sotheby’s International Realty in Newport, which handled both ends of the sale.

Kwan had taken sole ownership after filing for divorce from Clay Pell last year. Kwan and Pell both listed ‘‘irreconcilable differences’’ in the divorce papers.

The nearly 2-acre estate was initially listed for $4.4 million. The 5,000-square-foot home includes four bedrooms, including two master suites with balconies, and 5.5 baths.

It was the 10th priciest sale in Rhode Island this year, according to the realty firm that represented both sides of the sale. —Gustave White Sotheby's International Realty

Kwan and Pell had married in Providence in 2013.
