Fairleigh was designed by the architects Trowbridge and Livingston in 1914 for the George S. Brewster family. It now serves as The Hoffman Center, a private nature preserve and wildlife sanctuary that is occasionally open to the public.
I was visiting Fairleigh for a lecture about horse and automobile racing on Long Island. The cars in front of the mansion were on exhibit.
It was raining the day of my visit, so I did not get many exterior photos. This one shows the rear facade of Fairleigh.
The terrace, looking towards the terrace room, which was recently added to the estate.
The reflecting pond was visible from the rear terrace.
I just loved this chandelier, it is spectacular!
The interior of the terrace room.
The West Loggia is being restored.
