we have another porch in the basement which my Italian architect calls ARCADE. It has a large granite table that sits 12 people and a smaller one for silverware and coffee. The ceiling is vaulted with antique lamps . We installed a stained glass which my husband calls EVOLUTION as we found this stained glass about 10 years after the house was completed and so, he rented a jack hammer to cut away the stucco and installed this beautiful glass. In 2012, a stupid teenager came and broke part of the glass. We were very lucky that my carpenter returned from NY to take it off, sent it to my stained glass guy who repaired it. One cannot tell that it was broken. My husband found a theater light to shine on it at night these pictures were taken from inside the arcade and outside from the courtyard.
