This charming, English country style home was designed in the early 20th century and is nestled quietly into enchanting woodland. The garden’s focal point is a placid lap pool, where a classical fountain and masonry walls establish a serene sense of enclosure. Adjoining the pool court, a foursquare cutting garden and organic vegetable garden are bordered by a tool house at the ravine’s edge. The garden’s structure dissolves into a natural wood that blends with the surrounding neighborhood. more photos
