Search for family home ends in a grand Tudor

The stately Tudor, designed by Los Angeles architect Gerard Colcord, set sail from Medina in 1999. Alissa Leinonen and Alan Chaffee found it with moss on the roof and acres of flowers on the wallpaper and curtains, the sheer size of it, 10,000 square feet, intimidating. She and interior designer Tim De Clue are working to make it homey for a large family.
