When 'Birchwood' Was For Sale
'Birchwood', the Anson Wood Burchard estate designed by Howard Greenley c. 1906 in Lattingtown. Burchard was vice-chairman and president of General Electric Company and chairman of the International General Electric Company. The residence underwent alterations by William Lawrence Bottomley in the 1930s. Click HERE to see 'Birchwood' on google earth and HERE on bing. The google earth image appears to be more recent than bing and shows that the house has since had a substantial renovation.
