Tour a gloriously restored, Federal-style 1830s home, featuring a mix of traditional mouldings, furniture and antiques, along with modern accents. Former antiques dealer Alan de la Vigne explains how he transformed it from a dilapidated home into a refined architectural retreat, complete with a Southern-style, draped porch.
