Stumbled upon this property without realizing it. We walked up and they were just starting a tour. Came to find the tour was free and they start every 30 minutes. The home is 4 stories and 44 rooms, we only saw ~14 rooms. Do wish we got to see more, but it was free so can’t complain too much! Tour guide was energetic and engaging and our group was just 3 pairs of guests so it was a small group.
