Mulheren Residence, Rumson, New Jersey

This Victorian mansion is located on the banks of the Shrewsbury River in Rumson, New Jersey. The original residence was built in 1905 and has been home to such prominent figures as Major Bowes and Cardinal Spellman. Rudolph Architects was commissioned by the current owner to design an addition to the residence that would respect the elegant detailing of the existing structure. The addition provides a new entrance, informal living spaces, a formal dining room, an office, the kitchen, laundry room and a mud room. The owner requested that the design incorporate an antique metal cupola and stained glass skylight which were imported from England.
