You are in the. . .
The main upper living area of the residence, this east-west hallway
opens onto a number of rooms including the master suite. The hall is decorated along
its length with a variety of paintings and small sculptures, and includes several cozy
alcoves within dormers unevenly spaced
on either side. A large velvet painting of a 19th century naval battle sits on the wall
about halfway down, near the threshold to the gallery.
The walls are beadboard and beautifully wallpapered plaster; the floor is carpeted oak.
There is a curious looking at the east end of the hall, and a rope net ladder leading up to a hatch in the ceiling. A set of stairs at the west end leads down. On the wall across from the stairs is a small, square chute.
