Date:

Notes:
"The lovely brick work inspired by 18th c. Virginia gardens are still the bones of this garden on a very small plot. They define the areas and direct the eye. The vistas from the handsome Georgian house, southeast and north while short are dramatic. The circle of brick in the front walk seens to be a favorite design of Frederic Leubuscher. Bronze bas relief in driveway wall is the work of S. Kinsberger."
