Final Installment of Swannanoa Estate

Here is a picture of Swannanoa which I found on Wiki. I only had my telephoto lens with me so was unable to get a complete shot. Maybe this will better show you the size of the home and its architectural style.

These three pictures are of the signed Tiffany chandler hanging in the Gentlemen’s Smoking Room

This delicate mural is over the fireplace in the Smoking Room

These are the double stairs up to second floor.

 Tiffany-like large stained glass window at the head of the stairs. As you walk in the front door, it almost knocks you off your feet. It is absolutely gorgeous with the light coming through it. The woman is a representation of Mrs. Dooley, the beloved wife of the builder and original 
owner of the estate.

The following are pictures I took of some of some of the 
detail work in the home.

This is an article which was on a table in the home.
