Currently under restoration, the airy foyer offers visitors the stairway to the second floor or access to the Hearth Room. A grand chandelier provides the first glimpse of the opulence carried over from the Mansion next door.
The Hearth Room is highlighted by an cast iron fireplace, and space for conversation. Once referred to as a double parlor, an entryway offers guests a view into the Family Dining Room.
As part of the restoration, the ceilings of the Family Dining Room have been lifted back to the original height. Perfect for games, conversation, and informal family dinners.
High ceilings and lots of storage highlight this period kitchen. Unlike modern homes, the kitchen was not designed to be open to the dining area, keeping mess hidden from guests.
The Butler's Pantry is conveniently set just off the kitchen and includes original hardwood cabinetry. There is a built-in flour-sugar bin, a feature unique to the period.
This bedroom has unique South facing French doors that open onto the top of the porch, reminiscent of the Peacock Room at the Mansion. A stairwell provides access to the unfinished Attic above.
With South and East facing windows, this bedroom overlooks the restored shake siding of the Mansion. Beautiful natural light permeates the space.
Another bedroom with excellent natural lighting, the view from the North window is of the shared gardens below.
The East and North windows provide lovely natural light, as well as views of the gardens, and restored Mansion next door. The footprint is ideal for writing correspondence, a comfy chair for reading, and more.
As was common of the time, The Guest House features one full-sized bath.
The basement served many functions including a root cellar, canning area, mechanical room, and larder.
The Attic extends the full length of the house and was used for storing valuable antiques.
