No photos were allowed inside, but the rooms were magnificently furnished. There was even a 8 foot deep sunken swimming pool (called “the Plunge”) with its own dressing area and an indoor gymnasium, plus a flower arranging room, 23 bathrooms, all kinds of nooks and crannies. You should have seen the woman’s dressing room! As big as most bedrooms and with about 7 or 8 closet spaces, plus drawers for jewelry and shoes. It was amazing.
The gardens were just lovely. Standing in the English garden was like standing in a Jane Austin setting. The enormous grounds were impressive — we had lunch in the carriage house which is now a cafe. a genuine jewel from the gilded age — I loved every minute of the tour. Thanks, Karen. I’ll remember it always.
