To allow sunlight and views, the house is generally one room deep. Built around a large central stair hall, the first floor comprises the living room, dining room, kitchen and a library. The gallery along the rear of the home provides circulation to the other rooms and incorporates morning and evening pavilions at either end. A three-car garage and the family room dependencies are attached to the main house on the sides of the entry courtyard. Bedroom suites are on the 2nd and 3rd floors.
