Notes:
Completed in 1998, the summer cottage is located on a small peninsula of land on the eastern shore of Somes Sound. The cottage is approached by a curing drive of fine pink granite through a woodland of native plants including spruces, ferns, and mosses. Large bleeding heart topiaries flank the entrance steps. The back terrace is landscaped with Italian terra-cotta pots planted with annuals and tender perennials. The cottage garden is planted with perennials and features a large terra-cotta jar, a rambling fence of branches, a cedar hedge, and pink granite paths. The back terrace also includes a putting green. Areas of low native plants and birch trees ease the transition from the lawn areas to the wilder areas along the shore.
Persons associated with the property and garden include: Dean Worder, Rebecca Wheeler, and Adam Sandone (landscape gardeners, 1998-2007).
