Grand Ballroom

ballroom International Headquarters

As you would expect, the Ballroom is the largest room in the house.   It is 165′ x 30′ and dominates the center of the house on the second floor.

The room is lit by two massive Louis XV crystal chandeliers and a beautiful skylight with natural and electric light.

The mirror above the marble mantle is 7′ x 14′.   The rug is 22′ x 37′.

At the West end of the room is a Steinway model B piano covered in gold leaf.

Around the top of the room adjoining the 32′ high ceiling are eight enormous hand carved oak panels.

The rest of the walls are covered with fabric with carved oak trim and decoration.

Also in this room are several of the beautiful vases formerly owned by the Belmonts.
