Notes:
Stony Brook has something to offer for everyone, novice and garden conisseur alike. There is a wide variety of flowering trees and evergreens at the entrance. After getting to the house one enters the formal herb garden. This area at the back of the house serves as a kitchen garden and offers views for the living room and other parts of the house. Behind the house is a barn next to a slightly overgrown meadow that is home to several different types of fruit trees. There is also a vegetable garden and 90 foot grape arbor which provides a heavy harvest every year.
Stony Brook also has a cutting garden and rose garden which provides roses for the house almost 6 months of the year. All the vegetables and annuals are started in house in the Stony Brook greenhouse, then moved outside to harden off in coldframes. The property also has a rejuvenated lilac allee, several functional wells, a swimming pool, tennis court and adjoining hillside rock garden. Stony Brook is a true masterpiece. Vista across lawn toward tennis court.
