'Rumpus House', the Carl J. Schmidlapp estate designed by Peabody, Wilson & Brown c. 1920 in Mill Neck with landscaping by Ellen Shipman and Ferruccio Vitale, now under the stewardship of the North Shore Land Alliance. After a successful campaign to purchase the property the NSLA needs some help figuring out what to do with 'Rumpus House', which has sat vacant for a number of years. The house would be a bit of a project but it is quite a house, located across the street from Upper Francis Pond and adjacent to the Humes Japanese Stroll Garden. Feel free to share any ideas in the comments section below. Click HERE and HERE for more on 'Rumpus House'. A tremendous thank you to the North Shore Land Alliance for allowing me to visit and photograph the property.
