Grand Room
The romance of the grand room sets the stage for intimate gatherings or expansive ceremonies. It was in this location, that Carlotta sat with O’Neill in the afternoons and proofread his writing production from the morning. Trussed with Spanish colonial beams hand-stenciled in the Addison Mizner tradition, the dramatic cathedral ceiling and the eastern apse with its light-filled, leaded windows are telling of Abreu’s Gothic architectural style. While the O’Neills surely used the space as a quiet room for reading and listening to their Scott radio, Eugene at times would liven up the atmosphere with his Wurlitzer player piano, named Rosie, given to him by Carlotta on his birthday.
