In Tarrytown, New York, a castle overlooks the Hudson River. This is
Lyndhurst, one of America's finest Gothic Revival mansions.
Lyndhurst Mansion Facts
The house was born as a country villa, designed in 1838 by Alexander Jackson
Davis. In 1864, the house was purchased by a wealthy merchant, and Davis was commissioned to
double the size of the villa. In 1880, the house was bought by railroad tycoon Jay Gould, who
added rich stained glass to the house, as well as exotic trees to the grounds.
Lyndhurst's 67-acre estate is as beautiful as the house itself, preserving
the classic 19th-century estate design, with its sweeping lawns, calculated views. A restored
1865 carriage house now serves as a visitor's center.
