Go inside the spectacular Gilded Age home of Edith Shepard Fabbri, the great granddaughter of Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt and wife of J. P. Morgan associate Ernesto Fabbri on a special tour with Untapped Cities Insiders. The mansion at 7 East 95th Street, built between 1914 and 1916 by L’Ecole des Beaux-Arts trained architect Grosvenor Atterbury, is now the location of the House of the Redeemer, a unique setting in New York City for reflection, study, fellowship, and prayer.

Inside the home guests will see decoration by Egisto Fabbri which incorporates the Fabbris’ collection of Italian Renaissance and Baroque furnishings and architectural fragments. Among the many stunning spaces you will see is the impressive library, a custom built space decorated with original wood ceilings and paneling from a 1600’s Ducal palace on the outskirts of Urbino, Italy that were transported across the ocean through U-boat infested waters during World War I!
