Notes:
This garden is located near downtown Asheville at an elevation of approximately 2,700 feet. The house was built in 1922 and is an excellent example of the Colonial Revival style of architecture. The gardens are found to the north and east of the home behind a lovely old brick wall. Doan Ogden, a well-known local landscape designer, redesigned the gardens in 1975. A pool and poolhouse were also installed about this time. A formal boxwood garden is located to the east of the home. Tulips provide color there in spring, while there are annuals and roses in summer. Sculpture, much of it playful and whimsical, is found throughout the garden and beside the pool.
Persons associated with the garden include: Hope T. Robertson and Reuben Robertson (former owners, 1913-1920s); Nathaniel Gennett (former owner, ca. 1920s and later); James Gamble Rogers (architect, 1922); and Doan Ogden (landscape architect, 1975).
