Spring Hill

Long Island’s North Shore, with its pristine seascape and bucolic interior acreage, is a dynamic mosaic of natural, preserved beauty. Part of the legendary “Gold Coast,” Old Westbury remains an enclave of mansions and comfortable homes poised on what were once vast estates. Amid this vestige of a time gone by lies “Spring Hill,” one of the North Shore’s idyllic gated communities, comprising 160 acres of pristine, secluded lots.

Conceived and constructed by the premier building and design firm, Kean Development Company, this sprawling estate, formerly owned by the legendary Phipps family, now boasts 22 distinctive lots, of which 12 are available. Residences here will be built, designed and landscaped by Kean Development. Your custom home will be tailored with myriad architectural details to the finest luxury standards. Anchored with these lots are specimen and indigenous vegetation, arboretum-quality trees, velvety lawns and a serene 3-acre lake. These estate properties are a rare celebration of unparalleled beauty and architectural finesse.


Old Westbury is 35 minutes from Manhattan and accessible by train and commuting arteries. It provides its residents with a private police force, village government, village hall and post office. Historic gardens, acclaimed museums and cultural venues, fine dining and shopping as well as excellent private and public schools, golf, country and equestrian clubs are nearby. Minutes away, Old Westbury Gardens – one of the most celebrated public mansions and formal gardens on the East Coast – occupies over 200 remarkable acres with a stunning Charles II style mansion. “Spring Hill” is located in the acclaimed East Williston and Roslyn school districts.


These verdant lots are level, open parcels, ranging from approximately 5–9 acres, all with a wooded periphery, laudable privacy and with stunning views throughout of the boathouse, stables and greenhouse of the former Phipps property. The properties are conducive to a vast array of style and design options.
Kean Development will craft the perfect residence to support the lifestyle this community purports. “Spring Hill” harbors a 3-acre lake stocked with fish, and its floating boathouse accommodates residents and their guests.


From humble, pastoral beginnings, Long Island’s estate era brought the American aristocracy to Old Westbury’s spectacular rolling hills, yet still kept them within close proximity to Manhattan. Incorporated in 1924, the village’s 12 square miles were a perfect lush playground for fox hunting, polo and thoroughbred rearing. Sequestered beyond the original wrought iron gates that stood sentinel over the grounds, “Spring Hill” boasts 160 picturesque acres, open meadows, rolling hillsides and lush woodlands. Common grounds line the handsome entry boulevard that leads in and out of the property. Piercing this broad swath of common lawn is a lengthy avenue of lovely, ancient, oak trees that provides an elegant entry to the estate. The proud little sister of Old Westbury Gardens, “Spring Hill” provides an enclave, fully fenced and gated, and with 24-hour on-site surveillance.

Originally, as part of the Phipps estate, an Italianate mansion was commissioned by W.L. Stow and designed by John Russell Pope, a prolific American architect. Many of Pope’s architectural expressions are echoed in the distinctive, collaborative work of Kean Development’s creative design team. Ogden Phipps later acquired the property to embrace his love for thoroughbred racing and keeping champion horses. His most famous mount, “Buckpasser,” was the renowned winner of many prestigious racing accolades. Ogden’s rize-winning orchid collection was housed in the English greenhouses adjacent to the stables. Though the mansion was pulled down in the ‘70s, the magnificent wall that buttressed the residence survives and will be brought back to its original condition.
