According to Jashemski, this once fine house, converted into a hospitium after the earthquake, at one time had a large peristyle garden.
It had a portico on all four sides. The columns were joined by a low wall which enclosed the garden, leaving one entrance to the garden on the north, and two on the south. A cistern opening was enclosed in the low wall on the north.  Only a few stumps of the columns are preserved.  
There was a gutter around the edges of the garden.
