I wish I could just visit this HOUSE. It is gorgeous - absolutely beautiful woodwork, ceilings , skylights, floors, chandeliers (except for a few) - many made by Tiffany - and it has a really interesting history. The current owners however have turned it into...More

What a cool place. Not at all what we expected, but absolutely fascinating to see both the beautiful home and the eclectic collection assembled by the current owner. The history was fascinating and I for one am so glad this place was saved and restored!
