Ker Arvor" is an exceptional estate in pristine, museum-quality condition that sits on 9.1 acres off Ocean Drive close to Newport Country Club, nearby beaches, parks, and sailing venues. The estate was built from 1931-1933 as the summer estate for Snowden Andrews Fahnestock (1886-1962). The architects were Russell & Clinton of New York.

There is ample acreage to install tennis courts and playing fields for summer activities or sports. A barn provides storage for all the "toys." No expense was spared by this owner. It is a property for the discriminating buyer wanting a relaxing lifestyle. An estate of this caliber has not been for sale in Newport for many years.
