KYKUIT, propriété des Rockefeller à Pocantico dans la Hudson Valley


Completed in 1913 for John D. Rockefeller by architects Delano and Aldrich, Kykuit has been home to four generations of Rockefeller family members. Visitors will see interiors designed by Ogden Codman, collections of Chinese and European ceramics, fine furnishings and galleries of 20th-century art. Landscape architect William Welles Bosworth designed terraces and gardens with fountains, pavilions and classical sculpture; more than 70 works of modern sculpture were added during the 1960s and '70s. In the coach barn are horsedrawn vehicles and classic automobiles. Operated by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.

Kykuit is owned by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and operated by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund.
