Otis Spunkmeyer founder's mansion replete with hardwood flooring
Otis Spunkmeyer founder's mansion replete with hardwood flooring The success of the Otis Spunkmeyer brand cookies has certainly had founder Kenneth Rawlings rolling in the dough, and while the pastry tycoon indulged in a 9,336-square-foot mansion, the San Francisco Chronicle reports that he and his family have recently put it up for sale.
According to the news source, the expansive seven-bedroom house was built in 1931 and includes a number of lavish amenities. Among the highlights are a spacious kitchen, a downstairs ballroom, a sunroom that offers a beautiful view of nearby Lake Merritt, and much of the house is furnished with hardwood flooring. Despite the number of attractive areas, it was the small TV room that Rawlings likes the best.
"There's a larger TV room downstairs, but we like the little one. You can definitely tell it's been used a lot," Rawlings' daughter Kim told the news outlet.
Homeowners who are looking to add a similar elegant atmosphere to their house may want to consider installing hardwood flooring. The National Wood Flooring Association reports that the material offers a number of design benefits, and can easily be cleaned by sweeping or vacuuming.
