About two blocks away is another wonderful house, completely different in style but just as special. It was built by two spinster sisters back in 1925 and is Spanish in feeling. It also has a spectacular setting, almost half an acre, shaded by enormous banyan trees. The current owners are actors at the Asolo, and they did a great job of updating and restoring it. I love the Bohemian feeling: the great big living room, with its 12-foot ceilings, wood floors and fireplace, and the sunken dining room with lots of original built-ins, and a new kitchen that blends very well with the home’s old-fashioned look.
