From her lioness knocker on the lancet arched doorway, to the rear walkout onto her Parisian Patio, this is as stately as the tudor era ever was.

We proudly present her, following several months of design prep with our crew and design in Rare Form.

Guilding was hand crafted by local artisan Dusty Signs, when presenting architecture of this significance, we employ Mr Madsen to solidify the curb to properly introduce what lies behind the doors of Tangletown.

Center Hall entry creates the opulent floorplan, sunken great room to the west and storied dining hall with natural access to southeasterly exposure in her screen porch.

Looking back, I always have to press clients harder on lighting exploration- the sunken hall was lightless upon move-in, as previous owners skim coated over the firebox sconce rough-ins, the result of their trust returns the Lioness to her 1927 Glory.
— Mr. Imhoff

Sconces were carefully selected by Deidre @ DRF- our supplier nailed the era as late twenties deco sconces, the mood provided by the candlelit glow against the Spanish plaster texture is everything in the late evenings of dim natural light.

This sunken great room has such fantastic natural light from all points on the compass, the previous owners lived in her for nearly 3 decades without a proper switching lighting source!

Daniel Heidkamp’s “Pink Breakers” provides the pop of moderne the great hall so desperately needed, a golden hour depiction of a Newport waterfront manor.

Hands down the grandest room of her Majesty: the southeasterly screen-porch which overlooks the sunrise for coffee twalks over her bond-like curved driveway into attached car garages.
