A main house and guest house form a compound of buildings on a bluff overlooking the St. Johns River. Old Live Oaks abound on the property. A dramatic view of Jacksonville's skyline and reverence for the old trees guided the siting of the buildings and connecting landscape elements. Outdoor living spaces extend between the residence and guest house and become areas for entertaining in the overall development of the property. The interiors are cypress with classic refined finishes. A unified design of the mortar washed brick buildings give the site a feeling of being long established in the area.
