This historic and eccentric structure offers 22 rooms spread out over seven levels on three floors. Ceiling heights range from 5-1/2 feet to 25 feet, with 10-foot doorways and 2-foot passageways. Ornate mantles top the 15 fireplaces, and decorative murals and detailed woodwork adorn every room. A winding staircase dizzies the mind as it takes you from level to level. These are but a few of the magical enchantments to behold in this grand home.
