Halsey Estate-Tallwood is a historic home located at West Hills in Suffolk County, New York, known locally as "Tallwood" but more formally known as the "Halsey Estate". It was built in 1925 and is a symmetrically arranged, 22-bay shingled residence with a central block and a series of either gable or gambrel roofs and varies in height from 1 12 stories to 2 12 stories. The central 2 12-story block is five bays wide and has a gambrel roof. It is representative of the Colonial Revival style. Its builder, Richard Townley Haines Hawley, was a partner in Teff, Halsey and Company, brokers, and W. J. Sloane Company. It has been used since the 1970s as a children's day camp.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
