'Burrwood' was built for Walter Jennings in Lloyd Harbor c. 1899 by Carrere & Hastings. Jennings was a director and secretary of Standard Oil Company and president of the National Fuel Gas Company. His son would go on to inherit the house, and eventually sold it to the Industrial Home for the Blind, which occupied the house until it was sold for development and demolished. Pieces of the gardens remain, as do a handful of brick walls and the original gates (as seen above and below). Click HERE to see where 'Burrwood' stood on google earth.
