From web site:
Old Westbury Gardens, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is the former home of John S. Phipps and his wife, Margarita Grace Phipps. Built in 1906 by the English designer George A. Crawley, the magnificent Charles II-style mansion is nestled amid 150 acres, featuring carefully planned formal gardens and landscaped grounds interspersed with woodlands, ponds and lakes. Westbury House, with its grand architectural features and generous proportions, is furnished with fine English antiques and decorative arts from the more than fifty years of the family's residence.
We'll warm our bodies gathering maple leaves,
In turn those red boughs to the flames consign;
And then we'll warm the sake, hot and sweet,
To warm our autumn hearts with the hot wine.
