It's surrounded by a nine-foot wall with security cameras. The area inside the walls is wooded with thick sycamores, poplars and evergreens. The grounds are magnificent, like out of a magazine and the size of a small golf course. A huge white house stands with a veranda as large as a dance floor. Behind the house there is a series of finely-lit gardens that terrace down a sloping hill toward a vale containing a swimming pool that looked like a pond. There are two hillocks at the left side of the vale, one bearing a small ruined shrine replica as decoration. There is lighting at intervals and trees dotting the grounds. Near the center of the vale there is a ring of thick evergreens that conceal something at their center. The whole place is bathed in silver moonlight.
