Inside, a ballroom-sized living room has mahogany woodwork with intricate carvings, and ornamental ceilings. Grand details continue in the oval dining room, where built-in cabinetry is a highlight, and in the solarium, which has a lattice work ceiling. The home has updated amenities, like a large eat-in kitchen, and it has nine bedrooms between the second and third floors. While entertaining in this manse, quiz guests on the number of fireplaces found inside. There are eleven in total, beautifully detailed on every floor.
