This was obviously a beautiful home, but much of it is off-limits, making the tour rather quick and uneventful - bathroom here, staircase, foyer, another bathroom here, and out we go.

Loved this mansion. The back door where the tour begins appears to be the front but you need to go around the front to see the flanking & cascading stairs not only to the door but down in the yard with a gorgeous waterfall in the middle! Flowers are all over and this is quite an experience to tour this home, built in the 1920's or 1930's.

Beautiful property and grounds. Enjoyed the furnishings and imagining living there. Disappointed that a third of the house is locked up and not viewable. Don't plan on eating at the carriage house unless you've got on your preppy clothes - it was full of socialite women with a haughty attitude.

It was really interesting learning about the history of this house and really fun looking at the furnishings some a thousand years old, really disappointed that one room was being restored so furnishings weren't in it and that the dining table wasn't in place and that the husbands bedroom wasn't open

The recent restauration is a clear success. The furnishing is beautifull (especially the magnificient library) Plan at least one hour
