Sneak Peek of Our At Home with Video at Tuxedo Park

Last month, Susanna and I were thrilled to visit 1stdibs and Housepad founder Michael Bruno at his majestic house at Tuxedo Park. While you’ll have to wait until Thursday to tag along for our video visit, I had so many photos of the beautiful surroundings and Michael’s spectacular house, I thought I’d share a little sneak peek.

Michael Bruno house Tuxedo ParkFor those of you not familiar with this idyllic enclave in Orange County, New York, Tuxedo Park was built between 1886 and 1930 by tobacco heir Pierre Lorillard as a bucolic retreat for himself and his affluent friends. With about 350 homes throughout the 2,600 acres, Tuxedo Park represents a mini history of architecture in the Gilded Age with houses by McKim Mead and White, Carrere & Hastings, Walker & Gillette, Bruce Price and more. Michael’s house, from 1930, was built by John Russell Pope, who was working for Bruce Price, and is listed as his first house. Approximately 14,000 square feet on almost 100 acres overlooking the lake, it feels like a world within itself.
