Although in a relatively dense district, these detached houses are surrounded by their garden. Set between two parallel streets, this entirely enclosed property has two entrances, one on the south side and the other on the north side. The most recent, most luxurious house stands on the north side of the property, parallel to the street. The other house stands at right angles on the edge of the west side of the property. This house is extended by a double open carport, topped with a flat.
An annex building, currently in use as an exercise room, is topped with a terrace.

A swimming pool and a spa bath are sheltered by a sliding cover. And lastly, a garage in use as a garden shed and machine room is on the far south side of the property.
