Rough Point’s grand stairway, designed by architect Horace Trumbauer, includes an impressive wall of glass windows, and stained glass shields, each of which represents a signer of the Magna Carta, perhaps in a nod to the house’s Tudor architecture. The stairway’s other notable feature is its large scale portraits, including works by the British painters Sir Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792) and John Hoppner (1758-1810).
