Fortunately, most of its original features were preserved, including the 1925 oak floors, windows, light fixtures, doors, and crystal knobs! The most distinctive piece of this home would be the fireplace, kept in its original form, made with extremely rare Batchelder tiles from the Arts & Crafts era. A MUST SEE!
