Tiffany window

The foyer is irregularly shaped, with oddly quirky angles. Rising from one angle is the main staircase, with dark carved wood and a Tiffany window. (Photo of Tiffany window by Pamela Tucker).

An odd little entrance hall with a beautiful window

The foyer or entrance hall is entered after coming in the front door from the porch (after passing through a little vestibule). It is full of odd angles; the other rooms on the ground floor, as well as the stairway to the second floor, all have entrances onto it, but scarcely any are at right angles to each other. To your right is the living room, its wide entrance framed by two pillars. To the left the music room. Beyond the music room is the main staircase to the second floor, with its Tiffany window. Beyond the stairs, in an odd angle, is the door to the kitchen; across from it, behind the living room (at another odd angle), is the dining room.
