'Waldene', the Walter G. Oakman estate designed by Grosvenor Atterbury c. 1900 in Roslyn.  Click HERE to see a brochure from when the estate was for sale and HERE for more.  'Waldene' has since been demolished.

With what are probably Mr. & Mrs. Oakman taking a stroll in their garden, this picture needs a caption – Ancient?

I know this is not the style for which Grosvenor Atterbury is famous, but I think 'Waldene' is a good looking house, inside & out.

At some point before the sale brochure was printed the widow’s walk was removed – I bet the view was great.

Good catch...I didn't even notice the people the first time I looked at it.

The view overlooking the village of Roslyn and the water with Harbor Hill rising over the treetops across the way had to be great indeed.

Doug, for my money, the guy in the photo is the proud head gardener
