There are two driveway entries on this property. One serves as place for visitors to arrive, to drop people off at the front door, as well as for deliveries. The side entry leads to the auto court and garages, which also serves as a basketball court. This access also serves as an exit for those entering the other end of the drive. The front entry space, defined by low walls and hedges, focuses on a specialty paved area and small central viewing garden. The major entertaining area is in the back of the house. The pool, terrace, outdoor kitchen, special seating areas, and overhead arbor make for pleasant places to sit, relax, cook, and entertain. The views to the rear of the property are kept quite open to allow for spectacular views to an adjacent golf course.

This property has a U-shaped entry drive with a specialty pavement drop-off area. The front door looks out onto a small lawn area, a low stone wall with some focal planting, and two large trees to enframe the house from the street. The driveway
extends to the right back to the garage. There is a patio space adjacent to the driveway that serves as an outdoor entertaining area, as well as a place to back out of the garage or for parking another car. From there, a set of steps leads to a lower lawn for the owners’ dogs, and then onto a stone path that leads to a two-level formal entertaining space adjacent to the kitchen/breakfast area. Two sets of steps lead to the lowest lawn area, where the major space is located for the kids’ soccer play. Another set of steps leads back up to the front of the house.
