The renovation objectives were to embrace the original Ossipoff design, while contemporizing key interior spaces, enhancing the attached guest cottage, and further invigorating the indoor-outdoor living areas with the addition of a pool and spa, as well as an expanded covered lanai and outdoor kitchen.
