Notes:
The property was the location of the birthplace of George Randolph Scott, also known as Randolph Scott, the actor. No house or gardens existed on this property when the current owner purchased the property in 1995, but remnants of a boxwood hedge are extant. Current designs focus on privacy and a "low-key feel" with a meadow and sculpture garden. The majority of the property is a working farm.
Person(s) associated with the property include: George and Lucille Crane Scott (former owners, ca. 1890-?); Judson Gardner (architect, 1996-1998); John James (landscape designer, 1995-2002); Dan Gregg (horticulturist, 1996-2007); Geoffrey Smith (sculptor, 2002-2007); and Bobbie Carlyle (sculptor, 2004).
