'Clayton', originally the Stephen Lloyd Bryce estate designed by Ogden Codman Jr. c. 1901 in Roslyn Harbor. Childs Frick, son of Henry Clay Frick, purchased the house c. 1918 and had Sir Charles Carrick Allom design alterations to the main residence while Guy Lowell designed the gatehouse. Today the estate operates as the Nassau County Museum of Art. Click HERE and HERE for more on 'Clayton'. Click HERE to see 'Clayton' on google earth and HERE on bing.
