Glenview Mansion Visit

Overlooking the Hudson River and Glenwood Power Station, Glenview Mansion is an incredible example of Aesthetic Movement design and Architecture.  Begun in 1876 and completed 1877, the house has been mostly restored to reflect the period lifestyle of the John Bond Trevor family who lived at Glenview until around mid century.
Even the floor tiles where meticulously designed.

Rotating bookshelf.  Probably my favorite find at the mansion.

 Stained glass skylight above the staircase.
