Gatsby's home was huge, an imitation of a hotel in France. It boasted a tower, ivy, and a pool.... as well as a large lawn and garden area.

From the text:

The one on my right was a colossal affair by any standard — it was a factual imitation of some Hotel de Ville in Normandy, with a tower on one side, spanking new under a thin beard of raw ivy, and a marble swimming pool, and more than forty acres of lawn and garden. It was Gatsby’s mansion.
