Notes:
"The homes in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California are typically cottage type dwellings on small lots. The pretty board/batten house and guest cottage, the interesting plant material and pleasing artifacts make for a garden of character and charm. The property is composed of brick patios and native stone paths surrounding the house and guest cottage."
"There are patios and sitting areas on the west and south side of the house and guest cottage. These patios, partly shaded by a giant old Pittosporum tree and a large pine, are planted with English Ivy, ferns, azaleas, fuchsias, begonias, and camellias mainly in shades of green and white. There are topiaries and many container plants."
"The sunny patio on the north side of the house has a sitting area, potted plants and a Koi pond bordered by flower beds. On the north wall Gordon Apple trees are espalied, blossoming in late February, followed by red apples in September. Unusual plants are a Hinoki cypress which as been in the garden many years and a small Gowen Cypress. This plant, which is indigenous to the Pebble Beach area, became very scarce, and seedlings were distributed to a few for propogation."
Persons associated with the property include: Norman Foster (landscape designer).
