Vincent Astor estate designed by Delano & Aldrich c. 1922 in Sands Point with landscaping by Annette Hoyt Flanders. Astor was the son of J.J. Astor IV and took over the Astor family real estate holdings following his father's death on the Titanic in 1912. In 1933 the residence was sold to Allan J. McIntosh, partner in the brokerage firm of Davis & McIntosh. McIntosh had been leasing the home as his summer residence since 1931. This aerial is part of SMU's Robert Yarnall Richie collection and was taken between 1932-1934. Click HERE to see 'Cloverly Manor' on google earth and HERE on bing.
