Restmere is a magnificent Italianate villa designed in 1857, by Richard Upjohn. Newport architect John Grosvenor and author Cheryl Hackett restored Restmere and had this landmark listed on the National Register of Historic Places. They also received the prestigious Doris Duke and Rhody Historic Preservation awards in 2019. Restoration entailed replacing the roof, installing HVAC, and upgrading mechanicals while retaining the historical integrity of the property. A landscape architect reimagined the parcel with stone walls, patios, paths,pergola, fireplace, hedges, and rose gardens. The double front doors with the original hardware 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, gas fireplace, antique lighting, and glass-fronted cabinets. The second floor boasts 10-foot ceilings, pine floors, marble fireplaces, laundry, and three bedrooms each with en suite bathrooms. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and a ribcage shower. The third floor can be used a separate apartment. The former rear kitchen ell has been transformed into a two-bedroom, two-bath townhouse. The lower level has 9-foot ceilings, brick walls, arched windows, studio, and four rooms awaiting conversion. Become the next steward of this turnkey landmark estate and family compound.
