Architect Jules Gregory is probably best known in this area at the moment for the Lambertville house on the market that he designed for himself and that features a double conoid roof and interior work by George Nakashima. It’s truly a masterpiece of mid-century modern design. But it’s not the only Gregory house for sale in this area.

In fact, Gregory’s Butterfly House in Delaware Township, NJ, is also on the market. Built in 1955, it has, according to the listing, hardly been touched since then — and it looks it. It’s kind of in rough shape, but a new septic system is being installed. For someone inclined toward preservation and renovation of an important architect’s work, it’s remarkably priced: $299,000.

    Hmmm…in FAIRNESS…Palin was NOT a celebrity while she “worked” as a politician during her brief tenor as Govenor of the great state of Alaska. And, since acheiving celebrity staus, she has NOT held a public office. I guess it’s TRUE that blogs are more like gossip and less like journalism…
