Browsing through listings today I came across a price cut for one of the grand mansions of Brookville, New York. The area is home to many estates including this one, the historic Harris mansion. The 1929 manor house was built for Henry Upham Harris, a partner at J.P. Morgan. Architect Roger Bullard created the home which is made of stone taken from the excavation of New York City's subway system tunnels. The 31-acre property has a three-bedroom cottage, gatehouse, green house, pool and tennis courts. The main house has eight bedrooms. Listing pictures show carved woodwork details, stone floors and leaded glass windows. When it was our estate of the day last summer it was listed at $12.9 million but it is now a million less at $11.9 million.
