Notes:
"This property belonged to Arthur Brouillet, an attorney in San Francisco. Although a Frenchman, he admired Dutch Colonial style and fashioned his home to suit his tastes which included an excellent wine room, a guest house and a large garden with an orchard."
"The pool area was built later, quite unusual with the brick terracing all around and elevated sitting areas. There is a large arbor at one end and a rock garden with spa at the opposite end. A particularly beautiful and large Plane tree shelters the middle garden."
Persons associated with the property include: Arthur Brouillet (former owner from 1930 to 1954); John Northmore Roberts and Associates (landscape architects in 1984); Gunther Schulenburg (landscape and design in 1984); James F. Moffet (horticulturist and gardener in 1990).
