The home was finely crafted and proportioned to evoke a sense of permanence. The stone arched bay entrance is carved from large dimensional stone, the second floor windows are trimmed in limestone and project thru the eave line to create a dynamic roofline and add character to the interior rooms. The house is entered below a sweeping curve of the oval staircase anchoring the elliptically shaped foyer. An elliptical skylight covered by a finely detailed lay lite illuminates the vaulted ceiling of the entry. The floor plan reflects a modern lifestyle with the family room anchoring the first floor plan and the living room replaced by a billiard hall. The rooms are joined by a wood paneled bar and poker table.
