A unique blend of Tudor and Craftsman traditions, this home glows of Old World charm while offering all of today’s amenities. Designed by architect William Oakley Raymond, it was constructed about 1920 as his personal residence, being the first house on the newly cut street.

Beautifully preserved, nothing was left to chance in its construction. The finest materials were used and architectural features elegantly embraced. The open floor plan is enhanced by tall ceilings, deep moldings and original hardwood and marble floors, while natural light cascades through abundant windows. 

The grand porte cochere welcomes you to enter and explore. Inside, living spaces are stylishly designed around cement plaster walls painted in a designer’s pallet. The living room features a gorgeous wood-burning fireplace and is open to the sun room with a marble floor and three walls of window to enjoy the changing seasons. The dining room is open to the music room, sure to please your guests.

The magnificent family room, with a stunning fireplace, built-in bookcases and two walls of Zeinathem block, completes the first floor.
