'Chateau Ivor'

'Chateau Ivor', the Charles A. Gould estate designed by John Russell Pope c. 1908 in Dix Hills. Click HERE for more on 'Chateau Ivor' and HERE to see the brochure from when the estate was for sale.

Thanks for finding floor plans, Zach. Nice arrangement; the three second floor bedrooms, where each has its own bath, lay out better than the three ground floor bedrooms, where you have to go through bedroom No. 2 to get to bedroom No. 3 (or go through the bathroom.) The third & fourth floors are clearly for servants -- a severly sloped outside wall in exchange for a hell-of-a view (not that a servant could spend that much time up there viewing out their window.)

Chateau Ivor would be a great house to have today -- never get lost in the crowd.

Perhaps bedrooms 2 and 3 are designed as a suite for visiting couples who desire separate sleeping arrangments.
