Thomas Gerald Condon estate designed by H.T.E. Wendell c. 1899 in Tuxedo Park, New York. Condon was president of the Southwestern Coal & Iron Company. The New York SHPO has a 1977 filing by the Orange County historian which credits the design to a William A. Bates. The estate was sold in 1908 to Pierre Lorillard Barbey and suffered a devastating fire in 1920. The residence was reconstructed by Robert R. Graham along the original design c. 1926.
