A very grand edifice with four Greek columns reaching to the third floor is the only edifice in this scene. This is a corner property. The home sits in a park-like setting which is surrounded on both streets by a high stone wall. Twelve trees in leaf are curbside. There is a break in the wall and one can see carriage tracks entering the property. There are four adults and one juvenile pedestrian. Two men are riding on horseback. In the lower right corner of the scene one sees a wooden fence.
