Notes:
"An early American farm house (dates from the 1670s) sets the tone for this south facing garden bordering a large lawn area enclosed by a puddingstone outcropping. This provides a series of microclimates. The front of the house has a flagstone terrace flanked by a holly tree and a circular perennial bed with azaleas and fothergilla. A wisteria arbor connects the front to the main garden area on the west side of the house. A small brick terrace is surrounded by a shade garden, a large perennial bed divided by a winding brick path, and a square pool with aquatic plants and gold fish.A privet hedge separates a raised vegetable garden. Across the lawn a rock garden is planted in the puddingstone outcropping."
Persons associated with the property include: John Hammond (1750s); Barbara Aspinwall (1920-1930s); Mr. and Mrs. George Aspinwall (1940s); and Mr. and Mrs. Peter Aspinwall (to 1974).
