I visited this house on October 7, 2011. It was built by Harry Guggenheim on land that was part of his father’s estate. Today it is part of the Sands Point Preserve.
Wonderful detail was paid to all aspects of this house’s architecture.
Charles Lindbergh was a frequent guest at this home. It is said that he wrote “We” while siting at this second floor window, seen below.
The house is built on a cliff overlooking Hempstead Harbor.
This is one of my favorite North Shore mansions.
