‘Belcaro’, the Frank Norton Hoffstot estate designed by Mortimer Foster c. 1910 in Sands Point.
Hoffstot was president of the Pressed Steel Car Co. and the Clinton Iron & Steel Co. He was also president of the National Bank of America and a director at the New York Trust Company. In 1910 Hoffstot was indicted in Pittsburgh for bribing an ex-Select Councilman, a charge which he spent the next year fighting and was eventually acquitted in 1911. ’Belcaro' was demolished in the 1950s.
