2005-2012
Notes:
The brick house was designed in 1914-1915 by architects Delano & Aldrich with a brick walled garden. Marian Coffin designed the perennial border. The grounds were designed to complement the house which was fashioned in the style of the English Arts and Crafts movement. The walled garden is a formal terraced garden situated near the house. Beyond the walled garden is a more naturalized, wooded area featuring a pond on the lower lying grounds.
Current owners of the property have undertaken a restoration of the property to reflect the original Delano and Aldrich design. The property has since received recognition from the New Haven Preservation Trust, the Connecticut chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects, and the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation and is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
This garden was originally documented in 2005, at that time it was identified as the Home of Edith H. Ilmanen. An update of the garden documentation was provided in 2012, as the Elizabeth R. Hooker House.
Persons and organizations associated with the property include: Elizabeth Russell Hooker (former owner, 1911-1965); Edith Hooker Ilmanen (former owner, 1965-2004); Delano & Aldrich (architects, 1914-1915); and Marian Coffin (landscape architect, 1929 and 1940); and TPA Design Group (landscape architects, 2008).
