The original estate was situated on four acres which housed stables and a carriage house which served as a residence for the maid and the chauffeur. Subsequent owners divided and sold lots. The current 1.9 acres are highlighted by a rose garden, fruit trees, tennis court with viewing stand, and an Olympic sized pool.
