And, the beauty of the location is matched by a substantial real estate tax advantage. The dramatic facade is accentuated by double mahogany entry doors and an open veranda that extends along the front of the house. Flanking the entry, French doors in the library and dining room share the view and open to the veranda. The interior is highlighted by a dramatic two-story circular foyer with a center staircase and open balconies on the second floor.
