General:
Located on ten acres, Sessions Village is divided into 29 plots with freestanding homes. French Norman Manor House is the centerpiece of the complex with numerous dramatic touches such as a tower, surround of a stone wall, and attached espaliered Belgian fence that attracts residents and visitors. A damaging fire in 1979 brought changes to the interior and garden. Originally, three tiered, Jack Cobel, architect, created a new garden that features a swimming pool and cabana at the higher elevation and a lower terraced area adjoining the house. The surround stone wall provides complete privacy and is lined with trees and shrubs, perennials and colorful pots of flowers are all around the garden.
Persons associated with the garden include: Bessie Smith (former owner, 1931-1978); Frank Benson (former owner, 1979-1993); Robert (Roy) Reeves, Sr.; (architect, 1929-1937) and Jack Cobel (architect, 1979)
There is additional documentation of other gardens in Sessions Village. See OH226000, OH230000-231000, and OH233000-235000.
