Casal dos Gaiatos (Brookfield, Connecticut)
Casal dos Gaiatos translates to 'Couple of Wags' in Portuguese. At the time of its documentation in 1973 this Connecticut property, owned by Mr. and Mrs. Burton Ashford, featured a gazebo situated above a terraced garden as well as a large patio adjacent to the residence. The patio, which provided a sweeping view of the surrounding landscape, served as an outdoor living and dining area framed with wisteria and vine-covered trelisses.
