The home was designed by Acanthus Architecture and inspired by the work of 20th-century American architects Greene & Greene. J A L A designed a motor court, front walkway, perimeter columns, iron fencing, and gates, composing a series of garden rooms. The motor court, constructed with gray exposed aggregate concrete and granite cobblestone, is framed by a light brick retaining wall with overflowing panicle hydrangeas. A staircase leads up and around the side of the home, coming to an open-air entertaining alcove and covered dining space.
