This recently built waterfront home in Bellehaven, positioned to save an old magnolia tree, is reached by a sinuous drive that rises to offer refreshing views of Long Island Sound. Once a rugged hillside, this site has been redesigned to be in quiet harmony with the setting, and multiple landscape walls of native stone echo the stone facade of the house. Features include a crabapple orchard, a cutting garden, and a small terrace overlooking the Sound. Rough-hewn stone steps and a lawn path lead down, through sweeps of perennial grasses, to the gazebo at the water’s edge. more photos

Inspired by a sunny memory of an Italian vineyard, this five-acre landscape successfully integrates an entertaining terrace, vegetable garden, tennis court and prominent pool. The vegetable gardens and fruiting trees were laid out on a strong grid intertwined with masonry. Each space is bordered with broad fences softened by rose bushes and perennials to complete this Bella Italia landscape. more photos
