The garage building is still there, but it now appears to be a private residence with a swimming pool in back: http://www.bing.com/maps/?v=2&cp=qtkyk58w8g4z&lvl=19.308726834512995&dir=0.8534597277735003&sty=o&where1=Lloyd%20Harbor%2C%20NY&q=lloyd%20harbor%2C%20new%20york

I thought this house was still totally intact?

The 42-room Fort Hill mansion when it was listed for sale in 2006 (@ $24M) indicated it was "rebuilt" in 1990 and still on 13.5-acres. The price in 2007 dropped down to $18M.

The Daniel Gale/Sotheby's listing cited a detached 12-car garage, indoor squash court and deep water dock.

A side point on a former resident:

'A former gatehouse for the Fort Hill mansion on the hill to the north, the brick house with a bay window on the first floor, five gables on the second floor and a pool and pavilion - and no screening on the water side - proved much too visible after Joel married model Christie Brinkley, so the couple moved to Amagansett, New York.'

SPLIA has a preservation covenant on this house. When I was at SPLIA two summers ago they had just finished an inspection (I do not recall at what frequency they do this). But I believe it is well cared for.
