A historical massive, granite wall that lines the Chorro Street side of the property, and to a lesser degree the front of the property, were quarried from Bishop's Peak. The use of granite can be seen in other parts of the city including the Presbyterian Church at the corner of Marsh and Osos. The granite wall adds privacy and dignity to this landmark mansion. A plethora of olive trees and privacy hedges were added during the renovation of the property starting around 1986. This centrally located, prestigious property is situated on one of the highest points in the city, providing vistas of San Luis Mountain and Bishop's Peak and is located just two block from the heart of downtown San Luis Obispo.
