According to Architect Magazine, the property was purchased about 20 years ago by philanthropist Ted Stanley and his wife Vada as their primary home. After Vada died in 2013 and Ted in 2016, their son Jonathan listed the property for sale with all the proceeds from the home sale to be donated to charity. [source]
