Knole Front Gate
The front gate to 'Knole', originally the Herman Duryea residence in Old Westbury designed by Carrere & Hastings in 1903. After Duryea moved to Europe the house was purchased by Henry Phipps as a wedding gift to his daughter Helen and her husband Bradley Martin. The house remained in the family until their son Esmond Martin passed away a few years ago at which point the house was sold and the property was unfortunately subdivided, however the house does remain intact and has a new owner.
