'Villa Marina', the Frank C. Henderson estate designed by Warren & Clark c. 1920 in Roslyn with landscaping by Hatton & DeSuarez and a golf course by Devereux Emmet (who resided at 'Sherrewogue' in St. James). Henderson was an Oklahoma oil operator, his obituary said that after college he "followed the sea" before he entered the oil business where "he made a fortune". The Hendersons also owned a home in Palm Beach named 'Land's End' (what are the chances?). The home was subsequently owned by Harold Henry Will before it became the Pierce Country Day School & Camp (of which I attended as a little kid and remember this house well).
