An elegant Steinway grand piano sits across the parlor, in front of a bay window. In an adjacent room, separated by paneled pocket doors and a line of deco-patterned tile flooring, an exquisite mantel of African mahogany adorns the dining-area fireplace. Dozens of whimsical paintings — of faces, violins and landscapes by legendary comedienne Phyllis Diller — hang for sale in the corridors and on living room walls painted in a creamy caramel and vibrant red. This restored 1903 house-turned-art-gallery is the dream of Tom and Susan Cassidy.
