Westbury House from the South Lawn, 71 Old Westbury Road, Old Westbury, Nassau County, New York. Charles II-style mansion designed by George A. Crawley. Former estate of John Shaffer Phipps (1874–1958), heir to a U.S. Steel fortune. Work on the estate began in 1903, when John Shaffer Phipps promised his British fiancée Margarita he would build her a home in the United States that resembled her family estate in Battle Abbey. The estate was ready for Phipps, his wife & their children in 1906.
