'Cedar Knolls'

'Cedar Knolls', the Frank Miller Gould estate designed by Noel & Miller c. 1929 in Laurel Hollow. Frank Gould was the grandson of Jay Gould and his wife Sara Miller, who SPLIA presumes to be related to George Macculloch Miller of Noel & Miller. Gould was vice president of the St. Louis Southwestern Railway and was chairman of the board of the Edwin Gould Foundation for Children, a philanthropic organization started by his father.

The house is located on Ridge Road in Laurel Hollow, just to the southeast of the former Tiffany estate, overlooking Cold Spring Harbor.

I'm curious Old (Former) Long Islander - where you around to see Laurelton Hall before or soon after the fire?

HPHS - No, but the remains of the estate were more intact, albeit overgrown when I first saw it, including a garage converted into a residence (now long gone) and an aviary.

My grandfather was Frank Gould's chauffeur and lived with his wife on the second floor of the estate's garage, located about half a mile east on Ridge Road (later converted into a residence, I assume the one referred to by Old Former Long Islander). He stayed on after Frank's death, when this property was acquired by a family named Gubelman (not certain of the spelling). I can recall playing in this house as a child. The grounds extended north to a private beach. As close to paradise as I ever got.

People who own it currently just made news for trying to have a designer showcase there , Village does not allow it.

I drove by the house last week. It sold for 1.9 m to someone from Head of the Harbor. They're building a garage to the left of the house in the brick courtyard. Fortunately, it's in the exact style and roof line of the house, so when finished, it should look like it's always been there. In addition, they put a new roof on the whole house. Unfortunately, a tree crashed through the beautiful solarium during one of the hurricanes a few years ago, and it was removed.
