The Casino is built into a hill along the roll-
ing half-mile Grand Allée, the “front lawn”
designed by neighbor and landscape archi-
tect Arthur Shurcliff, so that from the house,
only the balustrade of the upper retaining wall
is visible to those gazing seaward. Its build-
ing formed a rear wall for the pool area, with
grand staircases on the left and right lead-
ing from the upper lawn to the pool terrace.
Inside, the Casino housed a ballroom and “the
bachelor’s quarters.” Outside, there are urn-topped retaining walls, two pavilions, marble
from above, only the urn-topped retaining wall
of the Casino complex is visible (above left). The
half-mile Grand Allée is lined with classical
statuary (above right) in the spirit of the Italian
Renaissance styling that once informed the entire
estate. A niche in the Casino (facing page) holds
another piece of statuary, which was reproduced
by Skylight Studios in Woburn, Massachusetts.
