The gorgeous exterior stone was quarried on site to construct this marvel. The main house stands on a wide terrace with floor footprint sizes between 5,000 and 3,290 square including the walk out basement floor which has usable desirable ceiling heights. The grand covered entrance opens to the gorgeous marble tiled floors of the grand hall of the house and gives a clear span view to the other side of the house and it's giant entertaining patio.
