About the Living Room
With its original Victorian fireplace and floor to ceiling windows, the sitting room one of the home’s formal reception rooms.
The chandelier was restored, rewired and polished (one crystal at a time). The fabulous pocket doors are original too.

Living Room - Stories From the Past
Miss Myrt, born in 1923 at the home said that, even 92 years later, she could close her eyes and see it clearly. For the Morgans, the living room hosted formal visits when they had “company” and for the Fords it was at the heart of family gatherings.
The Ford grandchildren remember it being decorated at Christmas – with stockings hanging from the fireplace and a real Christmas tree standing between red velvet drapes covering the floor-to-ceiling windows. The deep red velvet drapes matched the fabric of the ornate Chesterfield too.
