The Charles A. Peabody Estate
The Charles Augustus Peabody estate designed by Grosvenor Atterbury between 1910-1912 in Cold Spring Harbor. Peabody, an attorney and partner in the firm of Peabody, Baker & Peabody, was president of the Mutual Life Insurance Co. His son Julian Peabody resided at 'Pond Hollow Farm' in Old Westbury and was a partner in the architecture firm of Peabody, Wilson & Brown. The residence suffered a fire and was demolished c. 1978.
