Notes:
The property slopes eastward toward White River. The house sits approximately 60 feet above river level. Original plantings were on the west side of the house. These were revised in 2000. Plantings consisted of yew foundation plantings with Winterking Hawthorn material for shading. A large azalea bed still exists along the south driveway. In the East garden is an undulating lawn panel bordered by a wide walkway and beyond, by a native woodland, underplanted with azaleas, rhodendron, wild flowers, and bulbs. A viewing circle with a bench overlooks the river.
