About this listing

Outstanding faux marbling, gold leafing, decorative painting and Venetian plaster throughout the residence was executed by decorative artist Hugh Luck. The impressive 40 foot entrance hall was inspired by the main hall of San Giovanni Laterano in Rome, Italy, using white carrara and bardiglio marble. The coffered ceiling was executed by Thayer Smith III, and each solid wood door in the residence was designed by Mike Decarlo Custom Cabinetry with door hardware supplied by P.E. Guerin.
