Notes:
This property on Long Island Sound is designed to feature the natural properties of the landscape and the views of the Sound. The view side of the house has stone terracing, steps, and stone pathways leading to the sound. Rock outcroppings, native grasses, and herbaceous borders are combined with a formal herb garden located off the side of a screen porch. This small parterre garden features a central statue and four brick pathways radiating out from the center. Low stone walls, used for seating, give a sense of enclosure. Additional gardens include a white garden; a perennial garden; a woodland garden; and a rock garden. Two metal cranes in flight are situated in a garden near the water's edge.
Persons and firms associated with the garden and property include: Walter E. Sachs (former owner, 1925-1960); Louisa W. Robins (former owner, 1960-1977); Frank Sprole (former owner, 1977-1988); Neil Hauch (architect, 1989); Joanne Hagopian (landscape designer); and Marc Peter Keane (landscape architect, 1997-present).
