Grande Dame of Windom Road
View from the private road.
On the property once owned by former US Secretary of the Treasury (1889-91), William Windom.

I’m an 84-year-old grande dame of a house with excellent bones and finely crafted features. I was designed by an architect whose keen attention to detail gave me graceful curves, beautiful arches and interesting angles; and was ahead of its time for I have spacious bedrooms with built-in closets and most have ensuite bathrooms of ample proportions.
