Built by wealthy social tycoon, Spencer Trask, President of New York Edison, founder of Spencer Trask & Company – the largest stock-broker in the country- on the highest hill available in Tuxedo Park. A lover of great art, he commissioned the renowned artist Richard Newton, Jr. to paint the mural in the ballroom set into the arched carved timbered ceiling in 1903. The phenomenal exterior architectural details are extraordinarily enhanced by their extension into the interior of this turn of the century 16,000 sq. ft. stone mansion on 2.6 secluded acres with 9 private apartments. The living rooms are spacious and all but one apartment has a fireplace. The tower was added in 1907 by Mr. Joseph Tuckerman Tower.
