hidden gems of Beirut

Once again, I’m posting photos in hopes that Kheireddine can help :).
This building is next to the Khalidy house, which I’ve posted about before. Every time I pass the Khalidy house, I only grow more curious about its neighbor, because I can’t see it!
Here’s what I see as I approach the Khalidy house:
Beautiful, lush landscaping spilling out from both properties. Doesn’t it want to make you see more 🙂 ?
Here’s what I see as I get closer:
Its even lusher – and so three-dimensional, with flowers and greenery spilling over the fence.
But this is all I can see when I peer through the greenery:
Its not much of a view, is it? If I shift around a bit, I can see a little more:
Its terribly tantalizing, especially with the wooden slat “extension to the original fence. Kheireddine (or anyone else!), do you know the story of this house and its owners – and its wonderful gardener?
