A Storied Old Westbury Estate

Nestled within the historic Old Westbury, New York, the esteemed Erchless estate has recently been listed for sale, marking a rare opportunity to own a piece of American heritage. Commissioned for Howard Phipps, the youngest scion of the illustrious Phipps family, this distinguished residence was meticulously crafted by the renowned architectural firm Adams & Prentice in 1935. Situated adjacent to the iconic Old Westbury Gardens, the residence of Howard’s elder brother Jay, Erchless emanates an aura of timeless elegance and historical significance deeply intertwined with the fabric of New York society and American history.

Notably, Erchless stands as one of the few remaining Gold Coast estates still under the ownership of its original family, with successive generations maintaining its legacy through the years. Situated on 92 acres of award-winning gardens, the main house was crafted in the stately Colonial Revival style, boasting fifteen bedrooms, twelve bathrooms, and a distinctive U-shaped design that encloses a sprawling central courtyard. Impeccably maintained, the interior exhibits unparalleled craftsmanship, adorned with numerous fireplaces, intricate moldings, and meticulously crafted woodwork. Among its distinctive features are two sunrooms with arched windows, ingeniously designed to descend into the basement on elevator motors, transforming the spaces into charming summertime porches.

Today, it remains a cherished property imbued with memories, awaiting its next custodian to continue its storied legacy into the future. If these walls could talk…

Oakstreet Shoppe

A charming home boutique and design studio will open this May in the burgeoning town of Abilene, Texas. Oakstreet Shoppe was founded by the dynamic design duo and TGP favorites, Rebecca and Lucas Gibbs of Gibbs Design + Build. This husband-wife team has forged an impeccable reputation for themselves in the world of high-end interiors and construction, recognized for their unparalleled craftsmanship and classic style.

Born from their full-service firm, Oakstreet Shoppe will be a treasure trove of timeless gems including curated homeware, furniture collections, and exciting finds that we can’t help but swoon over! The couple transformed a once dreary corner with a dilapidated metal building into new structure with an old soul. Before and afters below!

This haven of high design holds special significance for us, being the hometown of our founder Andrea. We cannot wait to see what is in store (quite literally) for Oakstreet Shoppe…. Stay tuned for more!
