From the Grey House:
Vincent closed the door tightly behind him and continued to the main staircase. A very wealthy San Franciscan built the house in the late 1800’s. Vincent acquired it in the early 1900’s and made repairs and renovations to most of the house and restored the grand marble staircase. He enjoyed walking down a large sweeping marble staircase. It made for a grand entrance. Reaching ground level, he turned right walked a few steps and turned right again, walking beside and then under the staircase.
There were five rooms on the ground floor. There were two meeting rooms, a state-of-the-art kitchen, a substantial library/sitting room and a ballroom. The large meeting room was connected to the ballroom/training room by a sliding wall. The dividing wall was often opened for parties. There was also a good-sized pantry and a bathroom. Vincent was headed for the cellar stairs, which were across from the kitchen. He opened the door, looked around, then stepped inside.
