Stone Lea, c. 1884

Designed by McKim, Mead and White, the premier firm responsible for such notable landmarks as Rosecliff Mansion on Newport’s Bellevue Avenue, the Villard Houses in Manhattan and the Vanderbilt Mansion in Hyde Park, NY. This majestic Victorian was built for George V. Cresson of Philadelphia, founder and President of a huge firm that manufactured ropes, wheels, pulleys and drive shafts to transmit power. The Cresson family summered at Stone Lea until 1911 when the property was sold to the Newberry’s, major stockholders of Packard Motor Car Company. It is one of the first homes in Narragansett to be placed in the National Register of Historic Places, recognizing its historical and architectural importance.

The residence is a beautiful combination of granite and Shingle Style with a flared hipped-gale roof, gable and hip-roofed wings to the west, and an ocean facing, covered, stone veranda. Though the house has been altered during the past century, it has retained much of its 1880’s charm and handiwork. The staircase is especially noteworthy and is a signature architectural element of Stanford White’s designs. The “grand piano” shaping of the first landing of the staircase affords a breathtaking view of the coastline. The interior spaces of this five bedroom home have been meticulously maintained including a renovated gourmet kitchen, ocean side great room and over 10 different types of crown moldings. A manicured lawn to the water’s edge and lovely pool area complete this perfect coastal retreat.

Narragansett is considered to be one of the crowning jewels along the Rhode Island coastline, famous for its sandy beaches, preserved architecture and gourmet restaurants. Minutes from shopping and fine dining in the beautiful coastal towns of Narragansett Pier, Wickford, Jamestown and Newport, it is less than 30 minutes from Providence and is within easy access to I-95, making it 1 ½ hours from Boston and 3 hours from New York.
