in 1934 for actor Nick Princeps and his famous dancer/singer wife Anita
Elson. It was designed as a weekend retreat; a place to host friends and
throw raucous parties. There was a terrace for sunning and a turquoise pool

have been reinstated and the place stands like a glorious anachronism
reigning over the bay. No better place for our spring campaign shoot.
