'The Lanterns'

'The Lanterns', the Herbert M. Harriman estate designed by Cross & Cross c. 1915 in Jericho. Harriman was a member on the banking/railroad family of the same name and in 1921 picked up and moved to Ireland with his third wife.

Disclaimer - link below will direct you to
Farm Group still survives. If you follow the link to - photo from 1966 shows house still standing along with the remains of the Shipman landscaping. Surprisingly a large portion of original land surrounding estate remains undeveloped.
