Description

The Carpenteria beach house for Albert Keep Isham was a Moorish inspired estate directly on the beach. Smith also constructed a natatorium, which was done in an "Islamic" style and contained a large number of decorative tiles around the swimming pool and a retractable roof.
The beach house and natatorium are currently part of a gated community with private beach access in the Carpenteria area.
