A permanent work of art

Rives Mansion staircase

“The staircase will remain as a permanent work of art.”

Last week, Oscar and Carmen Rivera, along with Kirk Cartozian, graciously shared with us their plans for the Rives Mansion. We had the opportunity to poke around into all the corners, and we have a lot of pictures to share. Today, I want to show you the grand staircase.

During this Christmas season, it hides a little behind the Christmas tree, heads up for a sweeping view of the grounds, then opens up onto the second floor landing that is big enough to be a room of its own.
