The 9,710 sq.ft. house was built around 1913 by Delano & Aldrich. The SPLIA book quotes Billy Delano as saying, "Mrs. Harry Payne Whitney asked me to build a studio in the woods at Westbury, where she could get away from Harry's polo-playing friends. She put me in full charge, with no mention of cost."
John LeBoutillier, the political columnist, pundit, and former Republican member of the House of Representatives, is the current owner.
