Vestibule

You enter the vestibule of the home through the original Eastlake door featuring its old “twist” doorbell and its picturesque etched glass, with a red-glass transom setting above it. The restored wooden floor surrounds the beautiful stairway which is made of three different tones of wood, and now fitted with a plush carpet runner. A replacement red-glass window intersects the lovely original wallpaper pattern that has been painstakingly recreated in stencil – a beautiful deep burgundy background with a gold fleur-de-lis pattern overlaid. The original trim separates the stenciling from the upper walls. A Victorian coat-and-umbrella stand sets up against the stairway’s wall. Almost all of the woodwork and trim in the house is original and was restored using a seven-step, labor-intensive process that has given it its warm glow.
