It's a fabulous house, and I can imagine that the view must be just as grand.

VP said...

This is even better of the residence of your Minister of Defense!

Marvelous structure. I wonder if people actually sit out on that balcony and take in the ocean view?

Is that Moorish architecture?

tres belle demeure, cela donne envie

@Lowell: It's a mix of styles, actually.

beautiful architecture!

Sharon said...

There's nothing quite like a mansion facing the ocean. There certainly are plenty of them in Southern California. Of course, those aren't nearly as grand as this one with all it's history.

This is wonderful! Love all the detailed work.

Randy said...

What a lovely place.

Like Lowell I was trying to place the architecture but it sure is a mix.

Jim said...
