125 Buckingham Road, blue mansion in Flatbush

Just next door to the Japanese house is another magnificent mansion. Built in 1910 and designed by architect Clement C. Brun, 125 Buckingham Road is another example of a temple-fronted Colonial Revival. The grand home was designed for George U. Tompers and his wife Lucie Margaret Hartt, a singer and soloist who was popular in the choirs and churches of New York.
