A cottage designed by James O'Connor for 'Hilaire', the George Ernest Fahys Sr. estate also designed by James O'Connor c. 1910 in Matinecock. Fahys, a former mayor of the Village of Matinecock and president of Fahys Watch Case Company, had three Long Island estates in his lifetime, all named 'Hilaire', this cottage belonging to the second incarnation. The main residence was demolished c. 1980. It appears that this cottage has since been converted to a garage, click HERE to see a current picture from Nassau County's tax photos.
