In the morning light the home is massive. A mansion. It has 16 thousand square feet, 13 or 14 bedrooms, most with their own fireplaces. Plus 2 bedrooms on the outside wing(?). There is a wonderful building on the property that has Dick's work shop (a future posting) with an apartment on the top. Sorry, I have dibs.
This is the dining room. Occasionally they hold weddings, showers, or business seminars here.
The outside of the home was taken in two photos. This is the main front of the house and the rest of the house is on the left, shown in the photo below.
The view below is from the front porch, over looking the lake. You should have heard the birds! Just imagine having your morning coffee and the paper...
