Notes:
Channing Hare, a well-known portrait painter and designer, bought the property ca. 1930 and worked closely with George Sargent, a garden/caretaker, between 1934 and 1952 to create an "Italianate style" garden. Sargent and Hare developed a rock garden and the tiered garden out of natural rock walls. There is also a "moon border" at the formal front entrance. An arch of weeping spruce provides the focal point of the tiered gardens. The owners established a formal vegetable garden behind the garage in 1984.In 1994, the landscape designer created the blue border and continued an existing long border, added a water feature; and designed the spruce "moon gate" documented in photographs.
Persons associated with the property and garden include: Channing Hare (former owner, 1930?-1952); George Kane and Charles Smith (former owners, 1952-1993); George Sargent (gardener/caretaker, 1934-1952); Stanley Underhill (landscape architect, 1967); and Thomas Lovejoy (landscape designer, 1994).
