Mill Neck House Long Island

This week-end we traveled out to the "Gold Coast" of Long Island. That part of the Island that was the summer get away for the robber barons of New York in the 1920s ish.
.
This house was owned by a cosmetics heiress.  She built a faux Tudor, with a lot of furnishings from England exported between WW1 and WW2.
.
The house was later donated to a school for the deaf, so it has changed very little.  It is not usually open, but they had a "Designer Showcase" this week-end that was very cool.  So the entire house was open.  Lovely.

Entrance to the House

Back deck, with a view of Long Island Sound

Another view of the front

A Fireplace from England.

Detail from the FirePlace.  Cool huh?  14th century (supposedly)

These windows were made for the house, they are from various Shakespeare plans
