Old Westbury Gardens

Get ready for a whole lotta photos. I got to tour the Old Westbury manor and gardens and the entire time I was in absolute awe. Beyond it's physical beauty, there is such a rich history behind the home. It was built in 1906 by English designer George A. Crawley for the Phipps family. The architecture and details of the home took my breath away. The molding alone was carved with such careful detail, I could have stared for hours. There's antiques and art that hasn't even been affected over all the years. There is 70 acres of gardens, and 160 acres of additions fields and woods. I kept picturing what life must have been like, with tea rooms and bathrooms big enough to house a family of six. I walked through the gardens and imagined the kids playing, inventing a whole other world in their yard. It was one of the most mesmerizing places I have seen. Here's just a few dozen pictures I took.

Beautiful, right?! For those of you who have been to NY, what are some of your favorite spots? Wishing you all a great day! xo
