Description
As one of Cliff May's first large-scale custom ranch houses for his benefactor and business partner John Arnholt Smith, this rendering and floor plan show how grand May's early work could be. The U shaped house was accentuated by the diagonal living room and dining room placement on each corner. Each room opened onto the central courtyard through a covered porch. This large-scale "ranchos de luxe" was a fitting residence for the land and oil financier Smith.
