A very beautiful home seen prior to the additions that were constructed when the property became a novitiate for the Sisters of St John the Baptist. This one should not have been torn down in the 1980's. There were so many options for its re-use. A sad loss. After the dismantling of the interiors I have always wondered where the staircase components, the marble mantel with the exquisite caryatids and the ornate dining room panels ended up?
