'Crossroads' Indoor Tennis Court

The James O'Connor designed sunken indoor tennis court to William R. Grace Jr.'s 'Crossroads' estate in Old Westbury.

Beautiful! This image is going right to my files. Is it fitted out with dressing rooms and a lounge? I'm completely fascinated by the type of building-do know the tennis pavilion at Kiluna Farm if so might you have pictures of it? As always thank you for taking us behind the walls and gates.

I don't have any pictures of Kiluna Farm, but as for the one above it has a viewing box from the second level (which is entered from a hallway on the other side) and downstairs at court level there are a few closets (which may have been dressing rooms). One of the closests I got stuck in as a child for about half an hour, it was a little scary. The tennis court was a later addition, check out the google view of 'Crossroads' and you can see its position relative to the main house.
