Located at 70 Vendome Road, this 15,000+/- square foot estate combines architecture and craftsmanship in a home that exudes elegance. Designed by Robert O. Derrick, and constructed in 1929, 70 Vendome has been commonly referred to as the Avis Home, whose name is synonymous with the rental car industry today.
