Falaise is a Normandy style home filled with antiques and open to the public for tours. It's here that Charles Lindbergh wrote his famous book "WE," while staying with the Guggenheim family at Falaise, and where he came for respite following the tragic kidnapping of his child.
Hempstead House was designed by Hunt & Hunt in the style of an English castle.
CastleGould was built to be a replica of Kilkenny Castle, but it was later used as stables and servant quarters.
Walk the grounds that overlook the Long Island Sound and step back in time to a period of Gold Coast splendor.
