This great hall from the 1960s, shaped like a Greek cross and paved with travertine, was a contemporary interpretation of Palladian symmetry.

Double staircases of painted steel with cantilevered travertine treads rose to the balcony. Enameled steel finials, lustrous as pearl, topped the glass-paneled balustrades.

Under these vintage steel & glass staircases, teak Foo dogs kept watch through jeweled eyes.

Every room on the first floor opened to the lower floor’s great hall. The bedrooms were connected — directly or indirectly — by the second-floor balcony.

This home, called Dragon Peak, was House & Garden magazine’s “Hallmark House” for 1968. This castle-style family home was built in Minnesota.
