Notes:
Situated on the top of a hill, Knole has been classified as a Beaux-Arts mansion and a Palladian-style villa. It was named after Sackville West's "Knole" in Sevenoaks, Kent, England. Thirty-three acres remained of the original estate as of 1985. The garden includes alles, terraces, formal gardens, a foly of limestone arches, court yard, water garden, and two walks--The Long Walk, and The Grassed Walk. A Le Notre style treillage originally surrounded the entire back of garden.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include: Herman B. Duryea (former owner, 1902-1903); Bradley Martin (former owner, 1907-1963); Carrere & Hastings (architects, 1902-1903); Thomas Hastings (architect, 1902-1903); and Lewis & Valentine (landscape architects (1902-1903).
