  1. What a wonderful find. It is a great treat to see the floor plans of this little architectural gem. It of course brings back the recent memories of the senseless destruction of the Inisfada mansion itself, well preserved and maintained up to the end, then carelessly abandoned by the Jesuits for a developers fast cash payment as they abandoned the Long Island community that supported them for decades and spit on the graves of the Brady families legacy. The fact that the Jesuits didn't care enough to ask for preservation considerations by the village or the new owners was a big middle finger to all as they departed Manhasset. Funny after the rush to demolish the house, in a few short days, nothing has been built. The rush to destroy required the developers to quickly flatten the mansion, which ended up destroying so many architectural artifacts that could not be removed in the haste, including scores of leaded glass casement windows, the wood wainscott in the halls and stairs, the magnificent beamed ceiling in the great hall, the stone floors, inlayed wood flooring, the acres of roof slates, the ornamental brickwork and masonry trim on the exterior, the list is endless what was destroyed by the wrecking ball. Simple greed by the Jesuit church, funny they don't practice what they preach! Nassau resident

  2. I was scrolling the internet like every day, there I found this article which is related to my interest. The way you covered the knowledge about the subject and the 5 BHK duplex in hoshangabad road was worth to read, it undoubtedly cleared my vision and thoughts towards B 4 BHK Duplex in hoshangabad road. Your writing skills and the way you portrayed the examples are very impressive. The knowledge about 6 BHK duplex in hoshangabad road is well covered. Thank you for putting this highly informative article on the internet which is clearing the vision about top builders in Bhopal and who are making an impact in the real estate sector by building such amazing townships.
