Knole Mansion

Knole Mansion


Old Westbury, New York (NY), US
Built in 1903 by Thoroughbred race horse owner and breeder, Herman Duryean, "Knole" was purchased in 1910 by business magnate Henry Phipps as a wedding gift for his daughter Helen's marriage to Bradley Martin. The Martin family owned it for nearly an entire century before it was sold in 2004 for $11 million, following the death of Esmond Martin. It is said to be deserted today.

The Palladian-style mansion was designed by Thomas Hastings of the Manhattan-based architectural firm Carrere and Hastings. It has 40 rooms, 17 fireplaces and 10 bedrooms. It was used as a backdrop for the movies such as "Arthur," "Reversal of Fortune," "The Night We Never Met," "The Associate" and "Look At Me" in the 1980s and 1990s.
