Harriet Adams created the gardensat Bird Haven formal garden spaces lined with boxwood on the west side of the house and dug the pond at the base of a field. The current owners hired Caruncho in order to create a medieval-inspired farm village. Positioned on a hillside, the buildings sit in the center of the property surrounded by fields, orchards, bog gardens, a swimming pool, and tea house.
Persons and firms associated with the property include: Harriet Stratemeyer Adams (former owner, ?-1982); Fernando Caruncho (landscape architect, 2003); Lisa Stammy and Dale Boomer (landscape designers of begetable garden, 2003); and Penn Reynolds (landscape designer of bog garden, 2006).
