Beacon Towers was a Gilded Age mansion that was situated on Sands Point in the village of Sands Point on the North Shore of Long Island, New York. It was designed by Hunt & Hunt, formed by the partnership of Richard Morris Hunt’s sons Richard and Joseph. It was the last house on Long Island to be designed by the firm.
Architectural historians have described the mansion as a pure Gothic fantasy, although it did owe some of its design elements to the alcázars of Spain and to depictions of castles in medieval illuminated manuscripts. The interior contained approximately 60 primary rooms and upwards of 140 in total. The entire structure was coated in smooth, gleaming white stucco. [x]
