With its intriguing and idiosyncratic terracotta façade, the unique power and vision of Frank Furness is immediately evident. Every square inch of the house was studied by architectural archaeologists and historians who joined the design team to restore this astonishing structure to its original use as a family residence of inimitable character. Custom sconces blend with period lighting fixtures, 19th Century antiques blend with original built-ins and a scenic mural based on English country house precedents supports the astonishing 400 square foot leaded glass skylight.
