"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).

An estate of this caliber has not been for sale in Newport for many years. The house is a 2-1/2 story stucco U-shaped plan with mansard-roofed ells on the formally landscaped lot. Cobblestone paving runs around the base of the house in the spirit of Louis XVI architecture. The east wing houses the garages and service quarters. "Ker Arvor" was noted in Country Life Magazine in May of 1935. Since the purchase of this estate by the present owner, the property has been restored to its present day exquisite condition.
