    Description

    "Ker Arvor," meaning 'seaside,' is an exceptional estate in pristine, beautifully detailed condition that sits on 9.1 acres off Ocean Drive close to Newport Country Club, beaches, parks & sailing venues. This classic estate was built from 1931-1933 as the summer home of Snowden Andrews Fahnestock (1886-1962) by architects Clinton & Russell of New York. The French 18th Century neoclassical house was modeled after La Lanterne (1787) at Versailles. The 12,500 sf estate has every amenity for modern living and offers the buyer a true sanctuary. It is a property for any and all generations - a family that wants a compound-like retreat or a smaller family that enjoys hosting extended family & friends. The manicured grounds house a heated pool, pool house with its own kitchen for outside entertaining, 3 car attached garage, 9+ bedrooms - all with private baths, sitting rooms/offices, an elevator, exercise room, wine cellar, central air conditioning & additional staff quarters/smaller bunk rooms for children/extra guests in the east wing. There is ample acreage to install tennis courts and playing fields. A large storage building provides storage for all the "toys." No expense was spared by this owner. It is a property for the discerning buyer wanting a relaxing lifestyle. An estate of this exquisite caliber and condition has not been for sale in Newport, one of the country's finest summer resorts, for many years. This offering presents an extraordinary opportunity.
