James A. Stillman estate designed by Albro & Lindeberg c. 1910 in Pocantico Hills, New York. Stillman was Chairman of the Board of the National City Bank. 'Mondanne' sat on over 400 acres and adjoined 'Kykuit', the John D. Rockefeller estate. Stillman's sister Sarah was married to William G. Rockefeller and sister Isabel was married to Percy A. Rockefeller. In 1929 Stillman's yacht, Wenonah II, exploded and burned in Glen Cove, Long Island. Three years later 'Mondanne' suffered a fire that destroyed the entire house.
