9. Meudon

Meudon, the William Guthrie estate, was a stone mansion that once overlooked Long Island Sound. Designed by C.P.H. Gilbert in Lattingtown, it was built in the French Classical Revival style as a replica of France’s Meudon palace.

In the 1960s, the house was demolished and the property was subdivided and developed for individualized homes. The area, however, still has a few remaining pieces of its former life. Among these is a lintel supported by Tuscan columns atop the hill on which the mansion once stood. The wrought iron fencing which once surrounded the mansion now encompasses several newly-built homes.
