In early 2002, Morales bought the home uptown with her husband Joseph Rhodes for $1 million. However, after remodeling her home for the ‘Today’ show feature “Better Homes & Garden,” Morales revamped by adding a four-story addition with many contemporary finishes, all while retaining the original curved mahogany staircases and slate fireplace mantels.
According to various new sites and the ‘Today’ feature, the home boasts many attractive features and amenities such as, “The parlor level has 10-foot-3-inch ceilings and dark bamboo floors with a working gas fireplace and modern, open kitchen with heated Brazilian slate floors, with a dining area that overlooks the garden, which has a play area with basketball hoop and retractable netting system, a custom built-in barbecue island with granite countertops, a 42-inch gas grill and a Kalamazoo pizza oven.” Talk about living in the lap of luxury- but that is just the tip of this iceberg.
