Notes:
"The house is 70 years old with an estate size garden. The garden is formal with a rose garden that has been redesigned. The carriage house has rhododendrons and other plants that soften its look. There is a courtyard and reflecting pond which has a spring display of plants. The rock garden is divided into a wet and a dry side."
"The garden itself appears to be designed by Mrs. Mabel Kerr, Sr., possibly influenced by Olmsted's work at Elk Rock garden."
