Notes:
The Federal brick farm has walled gardens and wonderful views of Mount Monadnock to the North and Dublin Lake to the South. The garden is enclosed on two sides by high field stone walls punctuated with white gates and on the other two sides by the L-shaped house and vine-covered arbors. Old granite pavers underline one side of the arbor while old bricks pave the other. At the center of the garden, a reflecting pool captures the grace of an old fruit tree against the sky. Other areas of the garden feature perennials, fruit bushes, lawn and shrubs. Beyond the walled enclosures is the old millhouse and millpond, filled with masses of native water-lilies. There are vegetable and cutting gardens outside the walls for family use. The 200 acres are protected by conservation easements.
