This estate has a dramatic 40-50 foot drop from the back of the house to the meadow. A stone patio, with an infinity edge pool sits at the top of this drop, with views of the meadow beyond. The meadow is planted with ground covers. Since the meadow is a floodplain, the characteristics of the meadow change in relation to water levels.
People associated with this garden include: Mr. and Mrs. James Grizzard (former owners, 1950's-1996); Ruckel Dillon & Wright (landscape designer, 1997); and John Gilbreath (builder, 1997).
