While most of the lot is cultivated with food, there are also many ornamental plants and flowers bursting with an array of colors and fragrance.

There is a lovely adobe garage and storage unit immediately to your right upon entering the property and a driveway just behind, that feels like a tree lined corridor with inviting Mandarin and other citrus welcoming you to the private main house area located in the back right area of the land.
