Your guests will swoon when they walk into the Flood Mansion's Grand Hall beautifully-appointed with Italian marble floors. But, don't expect them to stay in their seats for very long. Guests will flock to the bow-windowed Belvedere at the end of the room to savor the pretty views of the bridge, bay, and beyond.
