This will be a guided tour of our 15,000 sq. ft. mansion.
This home has an extensive history for our local area. The home is a 1910 Sears
and Roebuck kit home purchased by Mr. and Mrs. Long in 1977. Mr. Long was
a demolition contractor who salvaged architectural pieces incorporating them
into the expansion of the house. The unique and well thought out customization
in this home makes it a show piece. Some of the most showcased features
in the home are the stained glass sliding windows, Italian Carrara Marble
Floors and partial walls, the spiral staircase and the solid mahogany two front
doors that were made for the white house. Stand in amazement under the 6 ft.
tall chandelier that hung in Hugh Hefner's original playboy mansion.
This experience would be a guided tour which will provide guests with a history lesson, architectural amazement that can bring people together who have an appreciation for history, art and design.
