“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 villa features beautiful reception and dining areas with numerous fireplaces and large windows which fill the interior with light.

The estate is embellished with lush gardens of 35.000sq.m which are landscaped and manicured to a standard rarely seen today. Stone paths lead to various hidden resting places, where water fountains and sculptures provide elements of beauty. These gardens which playfully surround the extraordinary residence are very similar to the grounds of French chateaux. Only half an hour from the center of Athens, this is a dream estate which took years of work and imagination to create.
