After three days of rain, this beautiful Fall day seemed like the perfect time to head over for a tour. Volunteers for the Food Pantry organization lead the tours through this unique house with its eclectic collection of original furnishings, contemporary artwork, an incredible curved hallway, even the owner's beloved spaniels are present. It's all very relaxed, fun, and takes about 30 minutes.
The woodwork detail is the best part. Edward Bourne, the original owner worked with a local shipbuilder to create the beautifully ornate decorations outside the house (by hand), and stunning trim work and mouldings around doorways, fireplaces and ceilings.
