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.
