In 1949, Dora Hutchinson, heiress of the Chase Manhattan Bank fortune, commissioned the architect William Pereira to design her new home. Pereira was not only one of the most famous and prolific architects of the time, but he had also been a set designer, director and producer of several films in the 40s, won by an Oscar for his work of special effects photography in Pirates of the Caribbean Sea (Reap the Wild), by Cecille B. De Mille in 1942.
Dora used to gather Hollywood stars and California business leaders for their evenings, often throwing fireworks from the garden of Byrdview -So he called his new house- to announce the beginning of the cocktail hour. But soon he decided to return to New York and the house was left to Frank Sinatra.
