CV house - again - my favorite


  1. There's a book about John LaFarge... it's out of print, but if you can manage to find a copy - there's a decent amount of photographs of the house interior... This too, is my all-time favorite house. Have you visited The Breakers in Newport?

  2. Thank you! I will be on the lookout for that one. :)

  3. Also... there's a book on George Browne Post, the architect of the house. It's available on Amazon I believe... the title is his name. Wonderful details, etc.

    Several pieces from this house are now located in Newport, RI at The Breakers.... a LaFarge skylight (formerly in the NY dining room) over the grand staircase.. many pieces of furniture... etc.
    Send me an email at hpboy82@gmail.com I have more info for you :)
