I'd welcome the opportunity to pay a visit there.
Looks so cozy, neat and quite
and I love the color white !
You've got a good camera, however these contrasty light conditions of deep shades and harsh sunlight offers a challange which ends up either with very dark features or blown areas. Because this stuation requires a comprimise, I'll suggest using the center weighted avarage metering rather than the evaluative auto mode. So that you can determine the important part of the picture to come out of the camera as you wished to see. Hopefully there are things you can do for underexposed parts in the Photoshop.
For this particular shot I'd suggest cropping some from the top to accentuate the edifice which I understand to be your subject matter here and plus some 50-60 percent sharpening in the USM after a slight push to the midtone slider to the right, in the levels.
Expecting to see more of your beautiful environment...

The first shot was a good starting point. The second version is very nicely done.

I hope you did not get bored before unwrapping my bunch:G
As I said I also liked this place. Your effort is appreciable. However I found the noise on the roof quite noticable. Here's my quick edit for your image. Your feedback will be appreciated..
