When 'Sunken Orchard' Was For Sale
A brochure advertising 'Sunken Orchard', originally the Fay Ingalls estate designed by George B. de Gersdorff c. 1914 in Oyster Bay Cove. Ingalls was a founding partner in the firm of Holter, Ingalls & Guthrie (Guthrie was the owner of 'Meudon' in Lattingtown). Innocenti & Webel designed the landscaping for Ingalls. The house was eventually sold to Charles E.F. McCann who had James O'Connor add a pool, playhouse and indoor tennis complex as well as having Annette Hoyt Flanders design French Gardens which in 1932 won the Gold Medal of the Architectural League.
