'Guinea Chase Farm'
Mrs. J. Norman de R. Whitehouse estate designed by Hoppin, Koen & Huntington c. 1906 in Old Westbury. The estate was leased by Joseph P. Grace while 'Tullaroan' was being built and subsequently by Ogden L. Mills while his estate in Woodbury was being finished. In 1915 the estate was sold to Sidney Whelan, son of George Whelan, president of the United Cigar Stores Company. The residence was eventually demolished and the estate subdivided, click HERE to see where 'Guinea Chase Farm' stood on google earth. Photo from the NYTimes archives.
