'Pond Hollow Farm'
'Pond Hollow Farm', the Julian Peabody estate designed most likely by himself (he was of Peabody, Wilson & Brown) c. 1910 in Old Westbury. The home was apparently PWB's earliest commission, designed in the 'Long Island Farmhouse mode' (SPLIA). The estate sits amongst a few other PWB commissions, including 'Sunridge Hall' and a sizable renovation of the Von Stade farm. The house underwent a significant renovation/remodeling in the past decade but it doesn't look as if anything major was added or removed from the house.
