'Villa Mille Fiori'

 'Villa Mille Fiori', the Albert Barnes Boardman estate designed by Hill & Stout c. 1910 in Southampton.   Boardman was a prominent attorney and partner in the firm of O'Brien, Boardman, Conboy, Memhard & Early.  Boardman sold the house in 1923 to his law partner Morgan O'Brien and moved into a Polhemus & Coffin designed residence.  'Villa Mille Fiori' was demolished in the 1960s.  Click HERE and HERE for more on the estate.  Photo from the Ryerson & Burnham Archives at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Just simply spectacular, both garden and home. Medici meets the sands of Long Island.

Discovered this beauty through OLI. Damn shame it did not survive the 20th century to become a billionaires trophy property.
