Built in 1882-1883 by McKim, Mead and White for the Bell family.  The house was purchased in 1891 by the Vanderbilt family lawyer, Samuel Barger, who named the property Edna Villa.

I am especially fond of the lines of this house.  I also love the window in the corner of these 2 facades.  It creates a lovely window seat in the upstairs bedroom.
