The Chateau-sur-Mer is the first "palace" of Newport mansions. The lavish affairs held on the grounds marked the beginning of Newport high society until the appearance of the Vanderbilt family in the 1890s. High Victorian design in furnishings, paintings, wallpaper and decorations in this villa set the backdrop for former balls, picnics, teas and major Newport society events. In the 1870s the famed architect Richard Morris Hunt remodeled the home in the Second French Empire Style.
