Property History
Restmere is a magnificent Italianate villa designed in 1857by Richard Upjohn, who also designed Trinity Church in New York City. Newport architect John Grosvenor and author Cheryl Hackett restored Restmere and had this landmark listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Notable residents have included Alexander Van Rensselaer, Adolph Audrain, and Admiral Kalfbus.

 
Property Description
Restoration entailed replacing the roof, installing HVAC, and upgrading mechanicals. Beyond the veranda, double doors open into a vestibule and entrance hall with grand staircase. The first floor features a living room, dining room, and library—all with 12-foot ceilings, parquet floors, fireplaces, and period lighting. The new kitchen has stainless steel appliances, quartz counters, wood flooring, fireplace, antique lighting, and glass-fronted cabinets. The second floor boasts 10-foot ceilings, pine floors, marble fireplaces, laundry, and three bedrooms with private baths. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and a ribcage shower. The third floor can be used as an apartment. The former kitchen ell has been transformed into a two-bedroom, two-bath townhouse. The above-grade basement has 9-foot ceilings, brick walls, arched windows, studio, laundry room, and four rooms awaiting conversion. A landscape architect reimagined the parcel with stone walls, patios, paths, a pergola, fireplace, hedges, and rose gardens.
