dbo:abstract
  • Litchfield Villa (or "Grace Hill") is an Italianate mansion built in 1854 - 1857 on a large private estate that has since become part of Prospect Park, Brooklyn. The villa was designed by Alexander Jackson Davis, America's leading architect of the fashionable Italianate style for railroad and real estate developer Edwin Clark Litchfield. The structure is considered to be Davis' greatest Italianate villa, and is currently the Brooklyn borough headquarters of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. Davis also designed a coach house, greenhouse, and chicken house for the property, none of which is extant. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. After years of neglect, an extensive renovation was funded by an anonymous descendent of the Litchfield family. The renovation, under the direction of architect Ralph Carmosino, was completed in 2008. The original stucco was removed from the house, and many of the interior details, including the elaborately painted ceiling murals, were lost. It is located on Prospect Park West at 5th Street. (en)
