The exceptional ”U” shaped floorplan is comprised of a north service wing, a central living area, and a south bedroom wing, and features an interior corridor and sunroom with terracotta tiles overlooking the stunning courtyard with a sparkling pool and Spanish tile fountain. A post with a cast iron lamp welcomes you at the main entry path leading to the expansive veranda with original copper wall lanterns.
