Built in 1938 overlooking the Long Island Sound, Bogheid is a little-known French Manor-style house designed by Delano and Aldrich for Helen Porter Pryibil (1897–1969), daughter of banker William H. Porter, a partner of J. P. Morgan & Co.
According to a 1985 article by the New York Times, Mrs.Pryibil sold the 120-acre Bogheid estate to the City of Glen Cove for $325,000. While the city redeveloped the surrounding land into a golf course, Mrs. Pryibil retained the right to live in the house until her death in 1969. By the 1970s, however, the city no longer planned to adaptively reuse the mansion as a clubhouse for Glen Cove residents, and Bogheid was eventually sold in 1981 to Martin Carey, the brother of former New York State Governor Hugh Carey. Before the property fell into decline, Mr. Carey hosted a series of interior designer showcases at the house.
Today, Bogheid sits on a private six-acre parcel owned by the family of Martin Carey, situated within the Glen Cove Municipal Golf Course, an area where other estate houses have been reused for institutional purposes. Currently vacant, the property is threatened by advanced neglect and no known plans for rehabilitation. There appears to be little local interest in preserving this building and it is not protected by landmark designation.
• No change in status to date.
• Threatened by continued deterioration, trespassing, and vandalism.
• On January 28, 2015, a fire caused extensive damage at Winfield Hall, another historic property in Glen Cove owned by the Carey family. Designed by architect C. P. H. Gilbert (1861–1952)in 1916 for Frank Winfield Woolworth (1852–1919), Winfield Hall was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
