Architectural Comments:This house is notable for its dihedral roof planes and clerestory windows. The home is wrapped around an interior courtyard providing light to rooms with floor to ceiling windows. A hole in the courtyard roof was originally cut out for one of the lot's pine trees. The security gates are a later addition.
