A large ballroom is located on the third floor. Light pours into the space through the large skylight centered in the ceiling. Adjoining the ballroom is a large billiards room. The custom billiards table was placed in the room prior to installing the window. In these two rooms the Arts and Crafts era fixtures are original to the house. Wallpapers are documented patterns from the time period that enhance the overall Arts and Crafts look of the rooms. The redwood wainscoting in the ballroom is grained to look like redwood burl, an art form that has been lost. This is original paint, and one of the most historically intact features of the Mansion. The ballroom is presently used by members as a game room.
