A fieldstone house is set among fields with views of ponds and woods. The topiary gardens sit below the house, overlooking woods and farm fields. The topiary, in the form of spirals, birds, rabbits, a dancing bear, a large frog and baskets, are placed around the garden with groundcover in-between. In the center of the garden is a low hedge encircling stonework, urns and flower beds. To one side is a small fountain and pool.
