The $135,000 Entryway
You could hope your new house comes with a really cool piece of stained glass or vintage fireplace mantels or you could make your own luck by picking up a vintage piece from Architectural Artifacts, a company which I wrote about back in 2005 for their wrought iron specialties. They have stained glass, wood and marble fireplace mantels, lighting, doors, tiles, religious artifacts and amazing artifacts such as a the entire entrance of the Hillbrook mansion. The carved limestone entryway from Hillbrook, the estate of George Arents in Purchase, N.Y., includes a raised panel entry door. It sells for $135,000.
