The entry patio is paved with California adobe from Hans Sumpf in Fresno. (As far as we know adobe is not made in California commercially any longer.) The stairway to the patio from the driveway is an elegant way to first see the house, at the top of the stairway you will come upon are the adobe columns covered with ivy and the fountain. The french doors open into a skylight lit foyer with a tooled western saddle, a settee and mirrored amoire with blankets and coats to borrow if the evenings turn cold. The house is designed with seven arches capturing the view of the east patio deck.
