Built with an expansive view of the private pool, the home was constructed of handmade coral bricks imported from old Mexico. The kitchen cabinets were fashioned from wild black cherry trees, felled in the 1940s when neighborhood streets were originally carved out. The footprint is thoughtfully divided into separate wings, and the basement included a pool locker room.
