Virginia Fair Vanderbilt Mansion

Designed by architect John Russell Pope between 1930 and 1931, the Virginia Fair Vanderbilt Mansion is located on New York City's Upper East Side and a distinct example of a townhouse designed in the neo-French Classical style reminiscent of the private hotels of Louis XV Paris. In 2002, antique dealer Carlton Hobbs acquired the building and began a painstaking rehabilitation to convert the building from a private school into a showroom that would house its stupendous collection of fine arts and antiques. Following the rehabilitation, Gregory completed a feasibility study on behalf of the owner which ultimately led to the completion of a preservation easement and the capture of a federal income tax deduction.
