With the house!
Hand laid mosaic tiles in the enclosed front porch and sun room
Beautiful leaded glass front door. Eventually the blue paint will have to go.
Leaded glass entry to the porch. The double doors remind me of a phone booth!
Concrete garden sprites carved into the bases of the arches in the porch
Stained glass details in the porch
How can you not love opening this door every day!?
The carved pillars in the entry. The story is the builder brought craftsmen from Germany to do all the woodworking details on site.
Living room fireplace with Rookwood Pottery tile surround and beautiful carved mahogany mantel.
Built in cabinet in the dining room. We now know it has a secret compartment behind the drop down back!
Dining Room ceiling. Chestnut woodwork in here.
Door to the sunroom.
Oak staircase. Our beautiful grandmothers clock is having trouble finding a place in this house. It just seems tiny wherever we try to put it.
Built in seat next to staircase, outside of the powder room. Youngest Daughter says it can’t be called a 1/2 bath in this house.
