It is now a dormitory at Salve Regina University.  I had the pleasure of staying here for a few days in June 2012.

It still has lovely wood work, stained glass, and other architectural features.  I particularly loved the porch.

Wakehurst

Wakehurst was built in 1884 for James J. Van Allen. He employed Architects Charles Kempe and Dudley Newton to build this house, based on a manor house known as “Wakehurst Place” in Kew Gardens, Sussex, England.

Kempe was a stained glass artist by trade and in addition to the house plans, he designed the stained glass windows inside of Wakehurst.  These windows can still be seen today, as the building serves as the student center for Salve Regina University.

The University’s library sits at the opposite end of Wakehurst’s garden, a modern structure inspired by Wakehurst’s gables.
