The stairs leading down from the main floor give an instant reminder of the vibrancy of life with the bright terracotta tiles. If one looks back up the stairs, on the risers they can see a green tile with a burnt orange accent color. The railing is made of black iron that is getting more character with age. Coming off of the staircase, the sound of a waterfall and the beginning of a large pool room greets you. One might make a mental note that there is also set of double doors in the room. Otherwise, the rest of the room seems to disappear as the downstairs foyer isn't furnished allowing your senses to pull you into the room ahead.
