The composition of the buildings around the courtyard makes this one of my favorites by MM&W.

Is this the same Wheatly as in H.C. Phipps & Gladys Phipps estate Wheatly ? Because the Phipps estate also named Wheatly (after the highway) had a 1 mile training track along with stables. Please confirm/verify I am wrong : )

Are you sure the Phipps had an estate named "Wheatly". I know of Westbury House, Erchless, Spring Hill, Knole and Templeton...and the parents home in either Glen Cove or Great Neck...I think it was called "Bonnie Bell" or something like that...but never heard of a Phipps home being named "Wheatly".

Laura...you are mistaken. The Phipps estate you speak of is named 'Spring Hill' and can be found on the right hand side of the page under Estates.
