This detailed view of the back terrace of Rosecliff shows McKim, Mead and White's unusual use of white glazed terra-cotta as the exterior, giving the mansion a pristine, gleaming appearance. The massive French doors separating the ballroom from the terrace face the harbor and allow the interior, also white, to take on the changing hues of daylight.
