'Poplar Hill', built for Frederic B. Pratt by Charles Platt between 1917 and 1924 in Glen Cove. This home sits atop Poplar Hill and is very close to brother George's house 'Killenworth'. Click HERE to see Poplar Hill on google earth.
This would have been the front lawn, the trees would have been much smaller and the view of the Long Island Sound in the distance would be much more visible.
