Eastover is a historic site in Manalapan, Florida. It is located at 1100 South Ocean Boulevard. On December 23, 2002, it was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

History[edit]

The property was built for Harold Stirling Vanderbilt and his wife, Gertrude Conaway Vanderbilt, in 1930. It was designed by Swiss architect Maurice Fatio.[2][3]

It is currently a private, single-family residence. A portion of the home has been demolished and the land has been subdivided. The home had approximately 500 feet (150 m) of ocean and intracoastal frontage, but now it has been reduced to 350 feet (110 m). The estate has more than 3.75 acres (15,200 m2) of direct oceanfront land (according to tax records). The estate also includes a detached guest house, built in the mid-1990s.
