Ker Arvor Estate in Newport Rhode Island2

“Ker Arvor” is an exceptional estate in pristine, museum-quality condition that sits on 9.1 acres off Ocean Drive near Newport Country Club. “Ker Arvor,” French Breton for ‘littoral” or “seaside” was derived from the rest camp for Allied Forces in the pine forest of Pexonne near the town of Badonvillier in Lorraine, France. Built from 1931-1933, it was built for summer resident Snowden Andrews Fahnestock (1886-1962). The architects were Russell & Clinton of New York.The French 18th Century neo-classical style summer house was inspired by the hunting lodge of La Lanterne (1787) at Versailles. The home was featured in the May 1935 issue of Country Life Magazine.
