Lovingly updated to reflect the owners’ good taste, the first floor is traditional; understated elegance with beautiful glass and art  piece adornments. The home is used for many charitable functions and lends itself well for an intimate dinner of 10 or a group of 50— often with Tim sharing his culinary skills.
