'Broad Hollow House' Barn

The Clark barn at 'Broad Hollow House', formerly the Ambrose Clark estate designed by Rogers & Zogbaum c. 1912 in Old Westbury. SUNY Old Westbury currently owns the barn and leases the stalls to horse owners. Click HERE for more on 'Broad Hollow House'.

Nice weekend project to volunteer and help maintain the remnants of Broad Hollow House. As a fan of LIGC estates if I had the opportunity to surround myself with the aura of the place I would jump at the chance. The buildings are on a slow decline - they are doomed if they don't put some money into it. They should fix the place up, invite the Queen or one of the Prince's as a gesture to the estates past and hold a polo match in the renovated field.

This entrance facade has a lot of charm and belies the size of the overall stable complex. Looks like it was the same brick as the house too ???

and a brick barn is delightful with the deepset classical windows. at least it still exists but sure could use some help. whoever did that roof could use a couple of pointers on shingling. it would make a nice house with a courtyard.

security word def - "perso" - what my cat does when patted.

I went to BOCES there in the late '70's for large animal care. It was wonderful! I now actually ride on the old Westbury campus. There are still remnants of gardens along the bridle paths---
