Garden Entry

Note: This garden was opened in 2016

An elegant retreat that has a structured garden towards the street with a sweeping driveway, open lawn with deciduous trees and an entrance “courtyard” with a pergola and cottage style planting. The entertaining area of the house has a stone table separated from the lower lawn area by a dry stone wall and sweeping steps. The planting is a mix of native and exotics and creates a relaxing haven. The Japanese style courtyard by the bedrooms is, in contrast, minimally planted with some feature rocks surrounded by Silver Birch as the main features.
