Designed in 1915 by architect Alfred Heineman to house the colony's VIPs, the Spanish-Moorish style structure features elaborate Batchelder tiles and Egyptian and Islamic details such as keyhole windows and turrets. Per the ad, the available unit features a living room, dining room, hardwood floors, built-ins, high ceilings, a fireplace, air conditioning, a garden, an attached garage, and street parking.
