Protruding onto the front porch as a welcome gesture to guests, the front entry alcove is set apart by its richly stained mahogany front door. Also of interest is the brick floor. It's made from the same masonry pavers that compose the entry walk and driveway, and it seamlessly blends the foyer, dining room, and hallway. In the foyer, the brick flooring leads to an elegant staircase with flared bottom steps. Of equal beauty, a 6-foot-high wainscot dresses the foyer walls and continues into the entry hall, which is crowned with a barrel-vaulted ceiling.
