The entry hall is 32 feet long, with a grand parlor to the left, library and dining rooms to the right, all with 12 foot ceilings, marble fireplaces, and floor to ceiling windows, with magnificent views that are unchanged from the first days of the estates construction! Beyond the entry hall, is a large kitchen with its own comfortable sitting area, and attached office. Beyond the kitchen is the back hall, with the laundry, full bath, with sauna, and a side door to the estate. The second floor is accessed from the main hall, via the grand staircase, featuring the finest of railings money could buy in the nineteenth century.
