Located amidst a modern metropolis, The Van Dusen Mansion evokes a Richardson Romanesque style, complemented by spires and turrets of French Renaissance. It is a stone mason's masterpiece, made entirely of hand-carved pink Sioux Quartzite. When guests enter through the porte cochere, they will be immersed in a lavish interior world adorned with rich woodwork, Persian rugs, stained glass windows and glistening chandeliers. Beyond the mansion, we have several engaging spaces: a two-tiered carriage house, a spacious grand event center and an iron-gated courtyard graced with oriental lilacs, birch clusters and a dry stack stone wall.  Contact us today to schedule a private viewing.
