The house responds to the Greek Revival traditions of the neighborhood on the exterior with a wholly unexpected interior. The house is organized around two courts: first, an arrival court on the public side, and second, a garden court on the quiet private side.
Down a sweep of lawn and pasture, this big house looks like a collection of small houses. Greek Revival-inspired pavilions are connected by a Shingle Style link, uniting various regional traditions. The elliptical ceiling of the kitchen eating area looks like a shallow, tented canopy.
