Later the home was donated to the Marist Priests for use by the Catholic Church as a summer residence for visiting Bishops and Cardinals. The current owners have completed a nearly a $7.5M Dollar restoration including a new slate roof, elevator, electrical, plumbing, kitchen, telephone system, state of the art heating system, insulated windows, and newly painted shingles.
