Notes:
The residence was built in 1963 as a smaller version of Mr. and Mrs. William H. Burnham's other house in Pebble Beach, California, and the original landscaping was designed by Umberto Innocenti of Innocenti & Webel. The spacious property includes formal and informal areas, with mossy walkways, stone walls and steps and a children's playground in the woods added over the years. The formal back lawn is enclosed by clipped hedges leading to a wall fountain. At the front of the house there are formal planted urns, walls and clipped hedges. But other features are more casual, including a vegetable garden surrounded by a rustic fence made of branches, the woodland gardens featuring two southern magnolias, and flowers and flowering shrubs bordering the front lawn. A swimming pool is enclosed by a high brick wall and planted for privacy. Another designed garden behind the house is the oval lawn bordered by flowering shrubs and trees. A children's playground is tucked into the woodland area along with a stone fire pit.
Persons associated with the garden include: Mr. & Mrs. William H. Burnham (former owners, circa 1963); Mr. & Mrs. Malcolm McConihe (former owners, 1969-1979); Mrs. William Moore (former owner, 1979-1980); Umberto Innocenti of Inocenti and Webel (landscape architect); Hermann F. Shulz, ASLA (landscape architect, 1980-2010), Irene Belk Miltimore (garden designer); Margarida & Mauricio Duraes (gardeners).
