The Bobbitt and Stokes family trace their lineage to the founders of American Eastern Kodak, Borax, Pratt institute, the New York Board of Education, and Standard Oil, to name a few. A fantasy of history, combined with a quality of craftsmanship and details, completely modernized for the 21st century. The story of this home is evidenced by the lovingly designed architectural details, quality of craftsmanship, and property grandeur.
