When 'Gloan House' Was For Sale

A brochure advertising 'Gloan House', the Dewees W. Dilworth residence in Roslyn designed by Parisian born architect Jules Henri de Sibour c. 1930. Dilworth was an investment banker and special partner in the firm of Carlisle & Jacquelin. The house is no longer standing.

Not sure where exactly this stood but it was taken down around 1970.

The house stood just north of Whitney Garvan Phipps Drive, slightly to the west(and across WGP Drive) of Spring Hill in what is now Nob Hill/Lakeville Estates. There is an excellent aerial photo of Spring Hill and the Dilworth house in the June,1932 edition of Fortune. Not extant on 1966 aerial of Garvan and vicinity.
