    This Ashland couple loves people and entertaining and their sophisticated lifestyle is like a Noel Coward play, with people always walking in and out — and music plays a big part of that. The elegant grand piano sits on the north end of a sweeping, gallery-like main floor. Wine glasses in hand, friends and family can gather for an evening of fine music overlooking the Ashland hills.

    Think tuxedoes and evening gowns with twelve long-stemmed red roses and you get the idea behind this homeowner's sexy and sophisticated "old New York City loft-style apartment" Medford home. Toss in some animal prints and a grand piano and you've got a perfect place to bang out the show tunes — martini in hand.

    In this picture-perfect circa 1900 Craftsman bungalow in Ashland, a small room doesn't mean it can't be filled with music. The homeowner turned an attached breakfast room (thought to be part of the original porch) into a cozy music nook with a rocking chair and well-used upright piano, the latter fitting snugly under a square stained-glass window. The square footage may be small but the sound of music is always grand, wherever it's played.

    Much of the Old World design, furniture and textiles in this east Medford home were inspired by the homeowners' travels in Northern Italy. Their other inspiration is music — and a lot of it. Featuring an elegant grand piano, the concert room is abutted by the formal living room and dining room that together form a long recital hall. The lovely house can act as a recital hall as well as a family home. And when the music's over for the night, this dynamic family feels they've accomplished just that.
