Fine attention to detail carries throughout the home, which was built with a myriad of handcrafted accents by local artists.

Stained glass windows also adorn a variety of doors and windows carrying a unified nature theme throughout the estate. Throughout the home, hand-crafted windows also feature solid mahogany woodwork, copper flashing and antique brass pulley systems.
