Love the trellis work! Looks like were back to the era of CHAIRS. Red? Red walls??? A color version of Virginia Fair Vanderbilt as shown in the Drawing Room - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virginia_Fair_Vanderbilt
Deepdale is still a private house on Westcliff Dr in Lake Success. Just the center portion exists but it looks like it is in very good condition. The Lake Success Golf Course's clubhouse is a Spanish looking building on the other side of the lake from Deepdale.
In spite of all those chairs I am reminded of a comment Magnus made once (Magnus, please forgive my weak paraphrasing & feel free to correct) – imagine you & three of your friends come into the room & want to sit & have a normal conversation … you probably cannot do it without having to relocate at least one chair.Like DED I think the lattice work is beautiful (I wonder how far it extended down those ‘glazed corridors’ … or should I say ‘glazed sanitarium corridors’?) & that although the interiors are beautiful they are too grand for the exterior – DED, what do you think about Duncan Phyfe instead? For some reason to me the ceiling height is fine. There, my two cents.
Doug, are you psychic? I hadn't even commented yet and you knew I liked the treillage in the sunroom (for a particularly great treillage ballroom by Ogden Codman, go here http://thedowneastdilettante.blogspot.com/2011/04/regrets-obelisks-swans-bulfinch-little.html and scroll down to the next to last picture)These interiors are interesting---lots of furniture clearly recycled from higher ceilinged Vanderbilt houses. Though the ceilings must actually be at least 9 feet, they look really low----and many appear, when comparing with the real estate brochure, to have been dulled down.Interesting to see the columns in the garden, now at Eagle's Nest
...once your private jet lands. Should speed be a particular concern, and with township approval, one could easily access a helicopter directly from Republic and land at Winfield Hall 15 minutes or less.http://randevelopmentgroup.com/winfield.html
HPHS, thanks for the interesting link – I think the fatal flaw in the RAN Development Group’s scenario is: ‘with township approval’; or “Sure, fly your damn helicopter in low over our houses whenever you want so you can get home or leave as quickly as possible … why should our lives interfere with what’s convenient for you?” Perhaps the folks at RAN should get the approval first & THEN include it as a feature.
"Ran Development Group, along with Denise Carey, a registered architect" Carey as in Martin Carey???
