Built in 1927 by renowned New York architect Charles A. Platt, “Bois Doré” is graciously located on four private acres off Bellevue Avenue. The 23-bedroom French chateau was originally commissioned for William Fahnestock, founder of Oppenheimer & Co. Inc., and is approached through wrought-iron gates and a spectacular tree-lined driveway. Wrought iron and glass entrance doors complete the timeless limestone facade and center the two wings of the house. The entrance to the marble fireplace and the loggia open onto a beautiful brick terrace overlooking the large backyard. A grand 85-foot lobby stretches out either side, giving the space a sense of balance and grandeur. The east wing is anchored in the chef’s kitchen which features two Viking ranges under an antique white cast iron hood, pantry, family room, and lanai. The adjacent dining room is adorned with Martin Battersby’s trompe-l’oeil and a marble fireplace, one of the eight on the estate. In the West Wing is the nearly 2,000 square foot living room, office and ballroom, the largest of all private residences in Newport. An antique 8 foot Regency chandelier sparkles from the ceiling and reminds guests of a bygone era of glitter and glamor. The upper levels are accessible by two stairs or an elevator. Bois Dore has an illustrious history, notable property includes Campbell Soup heiress Elinor Winifred Dorrance Hill Ingersoll and later Oil Baroness Carolyn Mary Skelly. An architectural masterpiece rooted in Newport society.
