The original design of Fairbanks House saw this room as small quarters for the nanny plus an area on the second floor for the children to play surrounded by porches. As such, there was no mantel on the fireplace because it was not deemed as “important” as a fireplace that would be seen by the public or in the family’s bedrooms. Later, a lovely mantel was added, designating it as the only wooden mantel in the house among the ten fireplaces. The porches were enclosed allowing for the addition of a romantically sunken bedroom and a kitchen area with lots of windows. This bright room is perfect for longer stays, vacations, honeymoons, elopements or just some great Amelia Island relaxation.
