Starting with a curved entry and cantilevered balcony, the Brindisi mixes delightful elements with dramatic engineering in this West Indies Cottage. Curved braces support the front balconies while a dual pitched roof softens the height of the home. Solid quoins edge the smooth stucco on the first floor, while horizontal siding above adds interest to the front façade. A masonry parapet with circular design focuses the attention back to the front main entry.
The motor court sets the stage between the main house and detached 2-car Garage.
