Built in 1877 to 1878 after the design of the architectural firm led by William Appleton Potter and Robert Anderson Robertson, the Charles Baldwin House is a Shingle Style structure in Newport, Rhode Island. It was initially constructed for Charles H. Baldwin.

The Charles Baldwin House is also known as the ?Gamir Doon?, which is the Armenian for ?Red House?. Whether the owner did it as a tribute for the English ?Red House? of William Morris, it is unknown. However, this excellent example of an American interpretation of the Queen Anne style is still recognized as reminiscent of the English Arts and Crafts Movement. This is why the site is included in the listing of the Cupola?s Arts and Crafts Architecture tours.
