Originally the “dovecote” of the David Adler designed 1923 Albert Lasker Estate, this structure was designed to house pigeons and doves, as well as serve as a folly at the terminus of the estate’s long garden allee. After the estate was subdivided in the 1950s, the structure was adaptively reused and converted to a single-family home. More recently the current owners have continued to preserve the dovecote and have completed a renovation of the interior as well as an expansion of the house in a manner that sensitively preserves and respects the original structure
