Notes:
The half-acre property established in 2010 features clipped trees and shrubs, boxwood parterres at the foundation of the house, a custom-designed swimming pool fed by a seven-foot tall wall fountain, and two antique wrought iron chairs in a courtyard. Large urns in front of the house are filled with seasonal flowers and more seasonal flowers are grown next to the parterres on either side of the bluestone walk. Along the west side of the house there is a bed of azaleas and two Labrador topiaries while on the east side there is a rose garden filled with antique roses transplanted from another vanished garden. An eight-foot tall terra cotta statue of a Chinese warrior oversees the back garden where a courtyard of bluestones pavers is surrounded by hydrangeas, two dogwoods and two maple trees. Other trees include magnolias and 25 foot white crape myrtles for privacy at the back of the garden and a fragrant sweet olive tree next to a covered terrace. Butterfly weed was planted to attract migrating monarch butterflies.
Persons associated with the garden include Caldwell Design Company, LLC (landscape design company, 2013); Lambert Landscape Company (garden maintenance, 2010- ); Distinctive Pools, Inc. (swimming pool and wall fountain design, 2010).
