Old Westbury Gardens located in Old Westbury New York is one of the most beautiful estate gardens I have ever visited. Located on the North Shore of Long Island, the magnificent Charles II-style mansion was completed in 1906 by the English designer George A. Crawley. The grounds were the former home of John S. Phipps along with his wife Margarita Grace Phipps and their four children. Phipps had promised his fiancee that he would build her a home in the United States that resembled her homeland of Battle Abby. The 23 room mansion is surrounded by 200 acres of meticulously manicured grounds, formal gardens, woodlands and watersheds. It has been open for tours since 1959 and today is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Various events take place on the grounds including classic car shows, concerts, Scottish Games, school visits, garden tours, gardening classes, horticultural demonstrations and workshops. It has certainly become one of my favorite places to visit.
