Dedicated to the preservation of Long Island's 'gold coast' estates and other things old.
"Can be purchased for value of land only."
I wish more of these styles homes stood, they seem very comfortable to me.Off subject..house tour at Wereholm in Islip this weekend.
Timeline: this house was built in 1891; Hoyt died there in 1922; & in 1923 'Eastover' is for sale for just the price of the real estate -- my guess is 1923 plumbing & electrical expectations, plus changing tastes had left 'Eastover' behind.I wonder if someone bought 'Eastover' between 1923 & 1930 because being torn down in 1930 probably reflects this house was really undesirable during the Depression. Sad this house lasted only 40 years; all these McMansions should have such short life spans.
If "all these McMansions" have as much caulk in them on LI as they do down here, 40 years will be a problem. (I heard one fellow who works for me part-time say that back in 2007 one VA development was averaging eight large barrels per house. Presumably on the assumption that no one will notice, and that caulk is cheaper than carpenters.)
I agree about the caulk, Ancient. I've also witnessed the use of particle board in construction in place of plywood or any natural wood & am a believer that the only acceptable use of particle board is in the construction of cheap furniture; anyone who uses it in the construction of a house doesn't care about that house (my opinion & I'm sticking to it ... even stronger than the "glue" used to make particle board).Heather, Zach has a contact icon right below his profile in the top right-hand corner.
Imagine cows grazing on the grass on Centre Island now!

Anon -Thanks for the heads up...am deleting that comment now.
I'm not one to pitch a reality show on here, especially one I haven't seen before, but according to The Real Deal, tonight's episode of 'Selling New York' on HGTV at 9:30PM will include stops on Long Island (including possibly 'Templeton' II among others).http://therealdeal.com/blog/2012/01/19/the-bachelor-star-looks-for-summer-home-on-tv-show/
