The hardwood floors continue around the stately formal dining room to the main staircase, framed by the ornate balusters and railings and lit by the stained glass windows on the landing above. The main floor continues with walk-in butlers pantry off the formal dining room, second staircase to the above floor, and large breakfast room with built-ins lining the wall, woodstove and mantle.
