Notes:
The grounds of the estate were arranged in a series of connecting rooms with hedge-lined walkways. The majority of the garden "rooms" featured a central pool and formal plantings. The entired design is based around a central axis on which a pergola and summer house were placed. The estate was edged with informal woodland areas, planted with azaleas and dogwood. The estate was subdivided after World War II.
Persons and organizations associated with the garden include: F. H. Denny (former owner); Alfred S. Bourne (former owner, ca. 1920) Garrett (former owner); Stevenson (former owner); and Rose Standish Nichols (landscape architect).
