Crossroads' Sunken Indoor Tennis Court

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

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the indoor tennis court at The Crossroads was used in the 1954 film "Sabrina" starring Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart and William Holden.

I just went down the rabbit hole of looking into where they filmed Sabrina and found some info but nothing on the tennis court. Some of the movie was stated to have been filmed at Westbury gardens which is where the above picture you posted is from. Although, looking at the actual movie... the windows and the height of the building are not accurate. Maybe it was filmed at Hill Grove in California. But I have never seen a picture of that estates tennis court. So sad that it was demolished.
