To the left of the Foyer is the vast Living Room with four sets of arched French doors that lead to the side and back porches and a hand carved wooden floor to ceiling wood burning fireplace mantel with a marble surround and Mercer tile hearth and the original silver chandelier hanging in the center of this beautiful room. Wander to the right of the foyer into the elegant Dining Room with a 2nd marble fireplace, hand painted wallpaper, 12+G- plaster crown molding, wainscoting and a 12 light glass pane floor to ceiling door leading into the glass enclosed sun porch drenched with the afternoon sun.
