This jewel of a residence was once two separate houses for the Clayton Mark estate at 999 North Lake Road  One home was for the gardener and the other  for the chauffeur.  A later owner converted the two structures into a single home.  The current owners enlarged the main entrance, connecting the two parts of the house, and added south and west patios.  The interior was extensively refurbished, and more than two hundred new trees and plantings were added to the property.
