Santa Cruz I

The entrance courtyard opens to a walled central courtyard between the garage and guest house, and the main house. The courtyard, paved with acid-washed concrete, provides ample room for small children to ride their trykes safely around a tiered fountain. It's planted with queen palms, olive, citrus, and lavender. Rows of grapes and fruit trees line one side. In the back yard a custom, tiled fountain and two-tier, rustic arbor obscure what was once an unsightly view of the back of a neighbor's shed.
