'Chateau Ivor', the Charles A. Gould estate designed by John Russell Pope c. 1908 in Dix Hills with landscaping by the Olmsted Brothers. Gould was an accountant in Buffalo and organized a steel coupling manufacturing company named the Gould Coupler Company. He was Commodore of the American Yacht Club and was also in charge of the Gould Realty Company which had numerous land holdings in New York City. Gould hired Pope to design him a hunting and sporting retreat that sat on one of the highest points on Long Island and consisted of over 1,000 acres. Following his death in 1927 the estate went through a series of owners until it was demolished in 1954. Click HERE to see where 'Chateau Ivor' would have stood on google earth.
