The original large butler's pantry separates the kitchen from the formal dining room which opens up out to the stone patio and then to a private beach. New items have been brought in when necessary, but many of the baths and sinks have been restored showing their original charm. Additionally there is a detached garage with a restored cupola between the main home and the street.
