"This garden is supposed to be low maintenance. In reality, this garden with its fourteen distinct areas, is unending, especially in the spring when everything needs some attention. And each spring a new gardening project is begun, with the help of Allen Haskell, the well-known landscape designer."
The original estate was subdivided in 1958 and the home was built by Kenelm Winslow, nephew of Sidney Winslow, the original owner. The original estate was designed by the Olmsted Bros. in 1909. The original property name was "Fernwood."
