Common Areas

InnBuffalo is a “Preservation in Progress.”  During renovations, hand painted stenciling on the ceiling in the Music Room was uncovered.  The Dining Room revealed a similar treatment, including stenciled walls.  Silk, damask wall covering in the drawing room revealed the outline of the original mantel.  The library ceiling is gold leaf with a Persian inspired stencil.  Plans are in place to restore and replicate these elements, but for now,  these areas have been stabilized.  Guests get the rare opportunity to see elements of the home which have remained untouched for 115 years.

Property addresses are hand-written on a white-board signifying they are no longer available for auction. It was day two of the auction, which had gone on late into the evening, and still, they did not get to 619 Lafayette. It would be auctioned off the next day. On the way home, Joe decided to drive by 619 Lafayette again, but this time he was bold enough to enter the outer foyer, cup his hands, and peek through the sheers. He couldn’t wait to get home to describe what he saw, which he said he couldn’t describe, except the hair on his arms stood up and he’s never seen anything like it. All I was able to decipher was stained glass,... read more
