(w/Dell Mitchell Architects)

Loosely modeled after the famous Old Westbury Gardens manor house built in 1906 on Long Island, New York, this 26,000 sf house utilizes Georgian details on the exterior with French-inspired interiors.

The limestone front portico was hand carved and uses classic Paladian proportions, with Scamozzi capitals. Matching cast stone was used for the quoins (the outside corner trim) and balustered railings. Hand-molded brick was used for the house and retaining walls, with slate tiles used for the roofing. The exterior walls (along with the primary interior room divider partitions) were thickened with double studs to give a load-bearing appearance to the house. The Georgian exterior trim details were adapted from 18th century British pattern books.

The French interiors have a much different feel than the exterior, with elegant French boiserie paneling and furnishings used throughout the major rooms.
