The areas today we visited were on the outskirts of town. Last year the tour took place in the town.
Stepping into the foyer with many beautiful pictures and painting. Antique clocks and a collection of silhouettes. Lovely handcrafted antique model coaches
A walnut and oak main staircase in the home. The mantles are chestnut.
Giant linden tree in yard for shade
Our guide for the tour told us that some stone on outside walk way used to be inside the home , it was brought out and replaced with limestone on the interior. Westmoreland slate was added to the front porch and metal slate shingles were used, this latter info taken from our info sheet on the homes.
Beams in the family room were salvaged from the lucky strike warehouse in Richmond Va.
The bricks painted white and stone added to front elevation, which gives European flair
