The artist treated the house as a personal project and was actively involved in its design, as evidenced by the extraordinary collection of drawings by the artist in the Museum. On the ground floor, Sorolla located his work area, consisting of three studios with high ceilings, abundant overhead light and its own entrance from the garden, as well as the communal domestic areas of the house, i.e., the salon and dining room, which were accessed via a portico in the first garden. The first floor housed the family bedrooms and the third the servants’ bedrooms. The mezzanine floor, ventilated by the Andalusian Courtyard contained the kitchen, some other rooms, and the caretakers’ quarters. The house had electric light and central heating.
The garden was also created by Sorolla, who designed the layout, chose the plants, and made it one of the favourite subjects of his paintings in his last years.
