Just thought it was a great hidden gated stairwell with wonderful lines! The European architecture is wonderful and every where. This place is so big you with there was more time in the day to explore!
Pretty water lillies, little frogs and fish! The pond is full of all kinds of critters including turtles. It is very peaceful to just sit and gaze into the reflecting pool.
Try looking around corners and in little back alleys for some great old architecture. You can see how the early 1800 European look is carried throughout the estate. Marble and slate are every where!
A diferent angle of the Reflecting Pool from atop of the East Terrace with a great gated iron Arbor with light for enjoying at night. The stone work is incredible!
