This ordinary looking middle-class house in Newport, Oregon, with creamy white siding, yellowed brick, and a two-car garage blends perfectly with the neighborhood. But once you step inside, it’s like visiting a Renaissance palace.

The grand red living room has gilded beams on the ceiling and milled oak floors finished with a special Jacobean brown stain. A formal dining room connects to the other side of the dark green foyer, and a dark, wood-clad kitchen sits in the back, hidden from the rest of the home. The doors are thick and hand-carved. Windows are covered with stained-glass purchased from old English churches.
