Exquisite and timeless Tudor-style mansion in Federal Heights built for a prominent businessman and candy maker, J. G. MacDonald in 1922. Pope and Burton, two notable, award winning early 20th-centrury architects were commissioned to design the residence and to site it on the graceful curve of Wolcott and South Temple. The magnificence and grandeur of this home is unparalleled and is evident in many different design aspects, such as the curved staircase with hand forged railings, the solid carved, rope- twisted mahogany columns with gold-leaf cornices, the grand 2-story ballroom complete with its barrel ceiling, Juliet balcony, floor to ceiling cast stone fireplace and a bay window wall with 6 double stacked panels of diamond patterned leaded glass panes to absorb the natural light. A later addition to the mansion was the family room which opens to the kitchen and semi-formal dining area. Replete with rare types of rooms even for this vintage, like an executive office, music room, reading room, theater room, billiard room, and a mother-in-law apartment. The grounds are spectacular plus there is a 5 car garage. Located in a quiet residential section of South Temple and Wolcott Street.
