Fifty designers and landscape architects will transform this gracious 1920s Country Estate into a place of its former glory. The house was designed by the New York architectural firm of Peabody, Wilson & Brown for John Wesley Castles, Jr. and his wife Dorothea Bradford Smith between 1928 and 29.  Castles was a New York lawyer and an investment banker who served in the US Army in both World War I and World War II; his wife was a daughter of the former Vermont Governor Edward Curtis Smith and granddaughter of J. Gregory Smith, Governor of Vermont during the Civil War.
