Dedicated to the preservation of Long Island's 'gold coast' estates and other things old.
Was there a fire? Or a change in taste?
At least the garden features are still appreciated.
It actually looks like Hillwood, Marjorie Post mansion in Brookville.
Agreed, Anon, that it has visual similarities with Hillwood. I've thought some of Lord's best surviving architecture is actually in Tuxedo Park. Example with the c1900 The Leroy King Estate:http://bit.ly/pQEYyC
monica claims its demise was brought on by the slate roof being too heavy and eventually crushing the frame. thats a little hard to buy as the frame even in a neglected state was, i'm sure, designed to hold the roof up. a sad loss as this was another eclectic house with so many late Victorian touches so dear to us eclectics. i'm glad two rooms survived and i hope someday Zach's friends let him photo both of the interiors. speaking of which, do old photos of the interiors exist?security word def -"wishm" - what i'll be doing until Zach gets interior photos.
