Meadow Brook Daily Tours
A guided tour of the 88,000 square foot house takes visitors on a journey through time. The unique features of the home reflect the opulence of the country estate era, including elaborately detailed carved wood and stone, handmade hardware and ceramic art tile, ornately molded and carved plaster ceilings, stained glass window insets, crystal and art glass lighting fixtures, and gold-plated bathroom fittings. And while the interiors reflect various historic styles, the house is equipped with every modern amenity available in the late 1920s. It was fully electric with a central heating system, two elevators, three kitchens and a full size home theatre.
