Maybury Somervell, "Taynayan" has been compared to the appearance of an entire Spanish Village with its varying rooflines and multi-level building style. It has exquisite spaces inside as well as a glass-topped central courtyard that ties together the main public areas of the home.

The formal dining room walls are adorned with custom inlaid turbot shell motifs. The formal French receiving room and the spacious master suite also feature fireplaces. Among the numerous striking visual impacts is the use of glazed colorful tiles from Seville, Spain that depict portions of the story of Don Quixote.This is a wonderful home for living and entertaining, both indoors and out.
