'Deepdale', the William K. Vanderbilt Jr. estate designed by Horace Trumbauer c. 1902 in Great Neck. The picture is of the house before the Carrere & Hastings alterations, which can be seen HERE. Picture from Architectural Record.

Do you have more pictures of this house? The combination of its Colonial Revival architecture and the sophistication of the large sunken garden surrounded by dozens of flowering trees in topiary treatment is so intriguing! A seemingly perfect example of humble elegance.

Not at all what I think of as Trumbauer at all!

Not a typical Trumbauer, although the wings looked extensive and created the formal court for the garden.
