'Noview Farm'

 'Noview Farm', the Louis E. Stoddard Jr. estate designed by James O'Connor c. 1936 in Old Westbury.  Stoddard was the son of Louis E. Stoddard, well known polo player.  The residence has since been demolished but sat on Morgan Drive on a piece of what was then 'Wheatly'.  Click HERE to see where 'Noview Farm' stood on google earth.

Hi Zach,
any idea when this one came down? I seem to remember a family, last name, DeSimone, living there in the 1970's.

I may be confused. However, Barbara West married Stoddard, Jr. and, as a wedding present, was given a home at Catawba Farms designed by O'Connor. I am familiar for my family acquired Catawba Farms after this home was built. I believe it still stands on property .. now wildly sub-divided.

Surprising that this house built more recently than most houses represented here, of a manageable size and a timelessly elegant, but understated style would meet demolition so soon in an area now populated by houses of nearly similar size.

I love it was called "Noview" such an unpretentious name for such an understated beauty. Very nice I believe!
