'Wheatly'

Another interior courtyard shot of 'Wheatly', the E.D. Morgan III estate designed by McKim, Mead & White between 1890-1900 in Old Westbury. Click HERE for more on 'Wheatly' (be sure to scroll past today's post). Photo from the Elizabeth Morgan Jay Etnier Hollins archives.

You just tease us with these. They give us a whole new view of this place in its heyday

zach,
what do you mean by " be sure to scroll past today's post"
love Wheatly, to me the peak of that way of design, and life.

surprised to see the large staircase window open if you are having professinal photos taken of your property. Never been a fan of the strange pruning. However a Beautiful complex.

I mean when you click the HERE link for more it will first show the post you were just looking at. I want to make sure people don't just give up at that point and scroll down screen for quite a bit more on Wheatly.

These photos are pure magic!! Makes me wish I could just enter into the photo and be there. The destruction of Wheatly is akin to the death of the last unicorn in architectural lore.
