This house is organized around a formal entry court which is reached by a long uphill driveway. The courtyard is anchored by a two and one-half story stair tower. The house is sited to take advantage of the existing natural landscape and views to the south and west. Circulation is via single-loaded hallways on the courtyard side, with the principal rooms opening to the south and west. Field stone garden walls continue as a base around the stucco walls of the house.
