Early on in the restoration effort, the owner had to replicate the living room fireplace, which had been removed when the house was converted into a clubhouse. At the same time, Home & Studio was removing the 1911 version of the fireplace in the Studio (which became Catherine Wright's living room) to reveal the original Roman-arched design buried beneath . DeRhodes obtained the Roman brick from that fireplace to use on his own.
I hope DeRhodes finds a new owner as dedicated to maintaining the house as the current owner was in taking on the task of restoring the clubhouse to its former glory.
