The 18th century inspired houses on the 1000 block of Hardee Road were designed by two architects. Mott B. Schmidt designed the homes along the north side, inspired by the Renaissance architecture of Italy, and Phillip Goodwin designed the homes along the south side with a slightly more rustic appearance, yet maintaining a formal and classical design. (1033 Hardee Road is located on the north side.) Built in 1926, this French Rivera style home is just over 3,700 square feet and has 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. It features a beautiful pool, herb garden, and antique clay floors from Provence. Let's take a look!
You know I love a blue and white living room!
