The estate was originally built in 1864. Next, Samuel Sloan Jr. inherited the estate and remodeled the mansion from Carpenter Gothic to Italianate. Secondly, he enlisted landscape architect Fletcher Steele to design luscious gardens and a swimming pool grotto. In 2014, the estate was renovated again. The exterior of the mansion features six magnificent columns, reclaimed brick, and elegant windows that overlook the expansive landscape.
The distinguishing features of the grand foyer are polished and tasteful; high ceilings and black-and-white checkered marble floors create a regal atmosphere.
