 'Hillbrook', the George Arents Jr. estate designed by Lewis Colt Albro c. 1916 in Rye, New York.  Arents' father was the treasurer of the American Tobacco Company and Jr. was later associated with the American Machine and Foundry Company and the International Cigar Machinery Company.  It seems the house has been demolished sometime in the last twenty years as the front entrance had been for sale as recently as 2007.
