Notes:
Walter L. Rapp designed a reproduction of a Colonial Williamsburg mansion in 1937. The original name for the house, "Knowthewaite," is Gaelic for "clearing on the hill". Rolling lawns end at woodlands. The owner described the overall design as casual, according to the GCA Annual Meeting publication in 1954. Perennial borders lead to a swimming pool. Landscape architect, Henry Fletcher Kenney, designed a terraced rose garden ca. 1954. The rose garden is dominated by a hexagonal tool house, a copy of one at Mt. Vernon. A small walled garden with greenhouse at one end lies off the morning room.
Persons associated with the property include: Henry Fletcher Kenney (landscape architect, 1954); Eleanor Christie (landscape architect, ?); Walter L. Rapp (architect, 1937); and Frederick Geier (former owner).
