'Orchard Hill', the Peggie Phipps Boegner residence in Old Westbury. The home is an enlarged 19th century farmhouse. Mrs. Boegner, daughter of John S. Phipps, is responsible for the creation of Old Westbury Gardens and 'Orchard Hill' was her private residence until Nassau County purchased it in 2007 following her death and gave it to Old Westbury Gardens to be included in their property. It is currently used for private events. Click HERE to see where 'Orchard Hill' stands on google earth.
