I had an interesting day today.
Since I am on the House Tour committee for the Bayport Heritage Association, I toured the house built by George B Post.
The home, the Littlewood Estate, built 1896, is now for sale.
Since it is such a historic house and built by a well-known architect, the Heritage Association wanted to have it shown to the public.
It is not known what the new owner will do, how the house will change or even if it will remain standing (Yikees!).
It is a beautiful old home, with 9 bedrooms, servants quarters, trunk room, full basement and attic. It needs much updating but the right owner can do it justice and return this to the masterpiece it once was.
My wish is for its preservation, of course.
If you'd like to go on the Hour Tour, October 16, 2011, please email me, alidathorpe[at]gmail.com, and I will send you more information to buy tickets, $25. There will be 5 or 6 homes on the tour as well as refreshments at the estate of Meadow Croft.
