'Nonesuch House', the Cortland D. Barnes estate designed by Peabody, Wilson & Brown c. 1918 in Manhasset. Barnes' family was involved in publishing, running A.S. Barnes & Co.. This house is definitely far removed from PWB's Long Island Farmhouse style commissions but not far fetched for the firm. The interior wood was salvaged from local barns. The house has since been demolished.
