Stepping down two steps from the foyer, you enter into a transitional area that leads to the formal dining room and the kitchen beyond. A “true” compass rose adorns the rich oak floors. This area is ideal for a buffet for large parties, to serve as an extension to the formal dining room, or even an ideal spot to place the Christmas tree.
Wainscoting and box beam ceilings draw the room in, making it intimate for parties as few as 4, or allows expansion to seat up to 20. A Rumford fireplace with mantel, framed by windows is the focal point of this room.
