Wedding day inspired colors come together to dress this first floor walk-in-closet-like coat room, small powder room, and adjoining hall. An intimate and glamorous "away" space, it is the perfect spot to catch one's breath after a spin on the dance floor, to enjoy a bit of bubbly, to sit and chat for awhile, or whisper about the party in the main hall. One can almost hear the swish of rustling skirts and cheerful laughter of visitors from another time off in the distance. Today these rooms are newly appointed with exquisite finery that respectfully speaks to the past, but with a confident nod to a remarkable future. Cheers!
For whatever unknown reason, the architects labeled this room as the Smoking Room on the 1890 architectural
renovation plans. However, it was the custom of the Endicott's upper class that, after dinner, the ladies would
retire to the Drawing Room and the men would remain at the dining room table for cigars and port. Over the years this room was used as a coat room, a place where arriving guests could tidy up (especially in the years when automobile travel required the wearing of voluminous duster overcoats), and, a reception room for visitors not of the Endicott's social class.
ROOM WITH A VIEW: In their effort to create a harmonious union of house and landscape, the Olmstead firm designed new roadways and modified farm buildings placement in the landscape. A new circular drive at the end of the existing avenue of elms guided the visitor to the recently built porte cochere at the buildings formal entrance
