Explore the House

Longue Vue House and Gardens was designed and built between 1939 and1942 for Edgar and Edith Stern and their three children by landscape architect Ellen Biddle Shipman and architects William and Geoffrey Platt.  Shipman, the Platt brothers, and the Sterns worked closely together to create a masterpiece of utility and beauty uniting the house and gardens.

Consisting of a main house, 8 dependencies, 5 structures, 14 garden areas, and 22 fountains and ponds located on an eight-acre site, Longue Vue House and Gardens is one of the last Country Place Era homes built in the United States.
