Make an Entrance
From the south-facing garden entrance, enter the hall and notice the stained glass window above the staircase on the opposite wall, breathing muted light onto the staircase and the grand painting on the opposite wall. The hallway runs south from the garden entrance to the winter entrance on the north side of the house, recognised by the prominent portico feature. On the left there is a nook centered around a fabulous overheight , locally mined rubblestone fireplace, and the chimney breast proudly features an original photograph of Moses T. Stevens, the original owner of the house. On each side of the fireplace, wood banquettes are built into each wall. Naturally-derived trim carvings, wall designs and plaster of Paris ceiling friezes painted in luxurious bronze tones and textures are designed to capture and throw the sun's rays in dramatic fashion inside the house at different times of the day.
The mansion offers four formal gathering rooms, each with rich oak or mahogany paneling and large picture windows. The library and parlor on the left side of the hall close off from the hallway with pocket doors to create more intimate spaces. Both rooms have vast views overlooking the driveway, natural border and the picturesque lawns on the hillside.
A few steps ahead of you and turn right to take the central hall through to the two additional rooms that can be used individually or combined for a single event.
