The home has,since its origin,been graced by exceptional stewards,thereby retaining most of the original detail, superior construction, elegance and grandeur. A straight through Center Foyer w/ gleaming wide plank floors showcases both the formal Living and Dining Rooms,each w/ stunning fireplaces and rare Valley Forge marble surrounds.
