Lyndhurst sits beside the Hudson River in Tarrytown, N.Y. Originally built in 1938, Lyndhurst was home to people who shaped generations, from New York City Mayor William Paulding to railroad tycoon Jay Gould. When the home was built, surrounding swamps were drained to create the rolling landscape that still surrounds the home today. The castle is now a National Historic Landmark, and according to its website, the grounds still display “sweeping lawns accented with shrubs and specimen trees, the curving entrance drive revealing ‘surprise’ views, the angular repetition of the Gothic roofline in the evergreens, and the nation’s first steel-framed conservatory.”
