Erchless, Old Westbury, NY
Built for Howard Phipps, youngest son of Henry Phipps, Jr., who made his fortune at Carnegie Steel, Erchless offers the rare opportunity to own a “Gold Coast” estate still owned and lived in by the original family who built it nearly a century ago. The property, a 90-acre-plus property in the heart of Old Westbury, has participated in the Garden Conservancy Open Days program for many years.
Kept in glorious, pristine condition throughout, the fifteen-bedroom, twelve-bath mansion is like a time capsule transporting you back to a time known on Long Island’s North Shore as the “Golden Age.” Far from the mansion and hidden beyond fields and a wall of 80-foot-high beech trees, a well-cared-for farm and stables, with many out buildings and staff housing, make the estate virtually self-sufficient. Perhaps the most impressive feature of this magnificent estate is its incredible, enchanting, and seemingly endless array of gardens and towering specimen trees. For more than 60 years, award-winning varieties of rhododendrons have been bred here. Today, this botanical paradise is considered one of the best rhododendron gardens in the Northeast.
