2. Larabee Estate (1995)

Sydney Pollack’s version of Sabrina begins the same way as Billy Wilder’s version, in Glen Clove, Long Island, with the protagonist in voice-over telling us of the luxurious estate of the Larrabees. The estate once again has both an outdoor and indoor pool and tennis court and a garage filled with cars. The major difference here is that the Larrabees estate is located in the Salutations House on an island off Glen Cove, owned by the grandson of famed financier J.P Morgan.

The estate was also occupied by former chairman of the New York City Ballet, City Center, Lincoln Center Theater Company and other NYC cultural institutions John S. Samuels. He never owned the property and it was sold after the death of Morgan’s wife in 1993 to private buyers. The mansion is still intact today.
