Ft. of total construction. Exquisitely designed in 1939 by esteemed Architect Rafael Hernandez Moreno, the home was completed in 1940 and tastefully restored in 2020 by the current owners.
Nestled within two city lots and beautifully surrounded by lush tropical greenery from the Botanic Gardens native nurseries of the Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico, this enthralling home showcases a spectacular outdoor entertainment space with multiple covered/uncovered patios, swimming pool with cascading features and one of a kind garden adorned with two fountains, creating a private oasis filled with endless enchantment and diverse blooming flora.
