'Petit Bois', the estate of George Edward Ide designed by James Gamble Rogers c. 1917 in Lattingtown. Ide was president of the Home Life Insurance Company and was married to Carrie Hester, one of the daughters of William Hester, owner of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle newspaper. Ide died in the house just two years after it was completed and the estate was eventually sold to Thomas Dickson Sr. who had Bradley Delehanty design alterations in 1929.
