Old Spanish

This house was built in the 20's, on the Prado. The Prado entrance is about 5 blocks north. Notice the inner courtyard behind the front door. Most of the original rooms would open to the courtyard. The second floor that is visible in the back is most likely a new addition. While the house was reworked, it has kept the Spanish feeling. Bravo! Many additions on old houses are morphed into a mcmansion and the beauty is lost.
