@likemindstravel If one has ever been to the Breakers at Newport, Rhode Island one can see how large it is compared to the other surrounding mansions. Some have asked me about the size of Harbor Hill as seen in the previous post and from measuring Harbor Hill for which I did when creating the 3D model of it #harborhill3dmodel , the Breakers is almost the same length, width and height of the now lost Harbor Hill. Also if you have never been to Newport, consider joining me on my planned trip to the Breakers and other mansions from October 20th -24th being organized by @likemindstravel Please visit @likemindstravel for more information. A link to for more information and to make reservations is also at he top of the page here.

The mansion at Harbor Hill was spectacular and often hailed as one of the top ten magnificent homes in America, but even less estates had gardens that equaled those as splendid and perfect at Harbor Hill. Please see the previous image for where they will be built one day in the 3D Model. Just as the real gardens were huge efforts of time, labor and costs, so will they be in the 3D model.

What came first, the mansion or the forest? In 3D modeling you build the house first, then fill in the landscaping around it as you see here. Harbor Hill the mansion is almost done, but the magnificent French style gardens at the top right will have to wait for funding to be built.

The effects you can achieve with 3D modeling programs can go from total realism to dream like. This is what Harbor Hill might have looked like in a heavy fog. As the recreation of Harbor Hill continues I will also show the many effects such as fog, rain, snow, watercolor, sepia and just about look you can imagine.

Saving the best for last. The front entrance door surround at Harbor Hill. For those that have been watching the rebuilding of the Clarence Mackay mansion as a 3D computer model it may have looked easy. The general massing was not that hard but like all architecture, the details are where the work is. And there are endless details in such a grand house that Harbor Hill was. In the photo here, the image to the left is a photo of the real door and surround, now destroyed. The other two images are the beginning of rebuilding it. Please continue to follow as the door and it’s many complex parts get added. Also please consider contributing to the Harbor Hill Go Fund Me listed at the top of the page here which goes towards time and labor. Any amount is appreciated.

Each day more and more detail is applied to the Harbor Hill model. When Mr. Mackay was having the mansion built he said to architect Stanford White that everyday there are more unexpected costs and new charges. Building a Gilded Age mansion was not cheap, especially when one wants the finest estate on Long Island as desired by Mrs. Mackay.

As my team and I work on rebuilding Harbor Hill as a 3D model and noticing all the amazing details that it had, there is a sort of sadness knowing that in reality nothing remains of the house and only a few remnants of the estate such as the gatehouse. Here is a view of Harbor Hill in the late 1940’s after being ravaged by vandals, stripped of its interiors and about to be demolished. But continue to follow here as it is recreated virtually and we will be able to see as it once was in all its splendid glory.

The service wing at Harbor Hill was on the east side of the house. While the service of any great mansion was often never seen or visited by guests or often the occupants of a mansion, it was what kept a home running. All great houses required numerous staff to keep things perfect. I will be posting the construction of this wing next on my 3D model rebuilding of Harbor Hill.

Just for comparison this is the Harbor Hill estate property after being demolished and developed into 1950’s modern homes. While this was done over 70 years ago, the insensitive subdivision of large lots of land still happens today. Some of the few remaining estates on Long Island’s North Shore when sold and developed are broken up into larger lots now. Please see the previous post to see the before view. This photo here shows approximately where the mansion stood. I will be creating a 3D Computer Model of the Harbor Hill mansion and if you would like to contribute to the expenses I have a Go Fund Me site with a LINK at the top of the page here. Any amount is appreciated. #harborhill3dmodel #longisland #mansion #mansions

Harbor Hill in the middle of the 700 acre estate it once resided on. The other building in the background was the stables/garage complex. While the main house was designed by architect Stanford White, the long process of building the great mansion and working with Mr. Mackay’s wife Katherine Mackay, who was very involved, lead to many heated letters between her and Stanford White. Of course most of the letters to Stanford White from Mr. Mackay were complaints about cost and budget overruns. When the mansion was done, Stanford White was not commissioned to design the stables/garage complex which I am sure he was not unhappy about. Ironically while Mrs. Mackay obsessed over the design details of the mansions creation, she did not live there long and divorced Mr. Mackay to run off and marry his doctor. Mrs. Mackay never again lived in the splendor she spent years fussing over and died in her early fifties divorced from her second husband too. Mr. Mackay continued to live at Harbor Hill in regal style, but had to cut back expenses during the depression. After his death in the 1938, the contents were auctioned off and the estate went to his son who tried to keep it secure, but it soon was ravaged by vandals who smashed and stole anything they could. Now a empty ruined shell, it was dynamited in 1948. The estate today is covered with modern homes of the 1950’s and only a few small outbuildings plus the gatehouse remain. Please consider donating to my Go Fund Me account in the link above to help fund a recreation of this great piece of architecture as a 3D computer model. Any support you can give by is appreciated.

Harbor Hill, Roslyn, Long Island, NY. While so much of an architects business is sometimes a labor of love, I would love to make a 3D Computer model of Harbor Hill. My business presently does many 3D Computer models of new fine residences and uses the latest programs, but I would so much like to be able to rebuild a few now demolished Gilded Age mansions. But of course there would be research time and labor. I have started a Patreon account so friends and associates can contribute to this project. One can join at a monthly fee from $1.00 -$25.00. Take a look at the link at the top of the page here to read more. Also see #harborhill3dmodel for previous posts and photos of this now forever gone Stanford White designed mansion.

I have recently created a Patreon site where I will be posting my work rebuilding lost mansions of the Gilded Age in 3D modeling. One of the fun parts will be to see the progress on them. This photo is Harbor Hill, one of the greatest mansions of the Gilded Age now lost forever and will be one of my first projects to work on. Since this is not a commissioned piece like most of my work, there will be expenses mostly for time and research. I will also be posting a series of lost mansions in an artistic light as if they are now in heaven, while now gone, their memory will live on and not be forgotten. At present the site is about this, but I will also be posting rare personal photos from my own collection of 40 years documenting these houses. Most are on 35mm slides taken in the 1980’s and need to be scanned/color corrected due to age. The site will also offer to members notices of special events that can only accommodate small groups. So please consider joining and give it a try. Patreon membership categories start at $1.00 per month to $25.00 per month. An autographed copy of my book, “Houses of the Hamptons 1880-1930” will be sent to $25.00 level members after 4 months. The link is at the top of the page here. #harborhill3dmodel
