The building is five stories, in Italian Renaissance style. The interior rooms face a central garden court, in which a great fountain splashes the shrubbery and the flower beds. At night the fountain is illuminated. Throughout the house the doors are of spike-studded oak and bronze, and in the main hall and the foyer the floors are of black and gold marble from Spezia, Italy, and from the Convent of Montarenti, in Tuscany. The ceilings on the main floor are in plaster reliefs, and in the entrance hall stands a sixteenth century Florentine mantel from Raspannatti House, in Florence..
