Timber Point was built as a working farm for William L. Breeze in 1882. The architect of the original building is not known at this time, but it was Queen Anne in Style. In 1905, Timber Point was sold to Julian T. Davies. Mr Davies hired the architects Hart and Shape to alter the house and create the Colonial Revival Style structure we see today. Today, it is part of Suffolk County Parks and it’s grounds are used as a golf course.

I visited this beautiful Great River, NY estate on May 21, 2009. The house and grounds are now known as the Bayard Cutting Arboretum. The house was designed by the architect Charles C. Haight in 1887. It is Tudor in style. I have written and posted pictures about this estate extensively on my Long Island South Shore History Wiki Westbrook Page. I hope you will visit that page, in the mean time, perhaps I can tempt you with just a few pictures here.
