The former Irving Brokaw estate in Mill Neck was built c. 1926 by Walker and Gillette. The property includes Lower Francis Pond, a protected nature preserve. Irving Brokaw was an artist and ice skater, and it's likely he built his house here to employ the frozen pond in the winter. The house is very large, 3 floors and full servants quarters. The estate had been for sale and the house, stables and cottage still are. Nassau County purchased the two waterfront lots to preserve the open space.

The entryway. Notice the wrought iron bows and arrows above the double doors.
The formal living room. This room is very large, and there is an attached brick porch beyond the two sets of double doors.
The landscaping has not been maintained in roughly 50 years here, so there is a lot of overgrowth. To the right of the fountain is a trail that leads down to the pond. There are also horse trails throughout the woods at the far end of the property.
The stables. Looks like there hasn't been a horse here in a long, long time.
