This one of a kind historic gem features on the ground level a 16’ x 9’
ceiling in the Great Room. There are multiple levels in the home. The Great
Room is 45’ x 25’ in size with a curving stairway up to the main level on
both ends of the room. There are three balconies that look down into the
Great Room. From the south side of the Great Room, there are steps leading
down to the basement where there is a large amount of storage room and is
the location for a wine cellar and tasting room or another parlor. There are
also bookcases and a den which is 16’ x 16’ in size. On the east end there
is a curving staircase going up to the main level. There is a landing there
where one encounters the stair approach to the upstairs level from the main
level of the home. On the way up to the top level on the east side is a loft
designed for the grandchildren. Going to the top level of the home, one
finds three large-sized bedrooms with two baths. There are 1326 square feet
on this level.
The home has several wings.
The north wing on the main level was originally an open back porch on the
length of the north wing. This was enclosed and incorporated with an opening
looking down into the Great Room. The additional wing would be the back
entry tower, which is approximately 20’ in height. The main level in the
front of the house is separated in the center by the entry foyer and to the
west is the parlor. To the east is the library and to the north is the entry
arch to the dining room. The foyer itself has a unique chandelier that
originated from a mansion in Biloxi which was destroyed by Hurricane
Camille. The duplicate chandelier is in the center of the dining room.
These chandeliers were re-assembled and reconditioned by Ward’s Brass on
Pass Road in Gulfport. Someone bought the chandeliers in pieces in four
cardboard boxes to Mr. Ward, and he purchased them. After assembly, the
chandeliers were bought by the Danielson’s. Also in the entry are an antique
French sofa and a very tall 9’ marble top French inlaid unique piece. Going
west from the entry foyer is the parlor.
