Over the next ten years, with guidance from the New York City architectural firm of Rossiter and Wright, Howes remodeled the home, changing it from a
more modest Romanesque residential style house to a grand Tudor mansion. He added rooms and erected several stone towers, including a central tower 16' square by 64' tall.
Large replicas of circus lanterns grace the perimeters of the lawns where circus animals once paraded about.
The building has been handsomely restored
