Notes:
With landscape design by Robert Shaheen and Neil Hamill Park, this one-acre site features a brick Colonial Revival style house and a variety of outdoor living and garden settings. A brick terrace with outdoor seating and container plants overlooks a formal parterre-style rose garden highlighted by low boxwood hedges and classical statuary. Spring azaleas share border areas with hosta and shade-loving annuals as well as extensive shrub and tree plantings, while a green lawn provides a focal point at the rear of the property.
Persons associated with the property include Robert A. Shaheen (landscape designer, ca. 1950-1965); Neil Hamill Park (landscape architect, ca. 1965-1986); and Mr. and Mrs. Thomas C. Owen (former owners, 1950-1963).
