Built by Jay Walker, internet entrepreneur, this incredible 3,600 square-foot library on 3 levels in Walker’s home in New England is not just a “library,” a room filled with books. Oh, it has books all right – thousands of them, including rare, older books, incunabulae and incredibly ornate, jewel-encrusted tomes. But this “engagement space” also includes numerous artifacts of historical significance – a Sputnik, the napkin on which FDR in 1943 outlined his plan to win WWII – as well as just plain cool items like a chandelier from a James Bond movie and the original “Thing” hand from “The Addams Family.”

This staircase, of cherry wood and white, gains magnificence from a landing surrounded by a semi-circular wall of tall windows, and a high, high up peaked wooden tower ceiling.
