Wood floors with black walnut inlays, crown moldings and hidden window shutters will pique your interest in the Rothman family that built the house over 100 years ago. Enjoy our piano or simply relax in our TV/video room. Summer fills the backyard with flowers, a splashing waterfall and comfortable seating.
