Her father, Reginald Vanderbilt, had lived there before he met her mother, the heiress and designer told the Wall Street Journal. "He lived there during the winter months and, when summer came, moved to his house Sandy Point Farm in Newport, where he had a huge stable," Vanderbilt said.

Reginald Vanderbilt died the following year.

After his death, Gloria inherited a multimillion-dollar trust fund and moved to Paris with her mother.

The current owners purchased the home for $19 million in 2014, property records show.


A partnership of developers, they renovated the single-family home and converted it into three condominiums.
