Boxwood Farm is a 12-acre agricultural landscape with an original house and cottage from around 1780, and several newer buildings (1992-93), which infuse traditional vernacular wood frame buildings with a Modernist sensibility. The landscape reflects the farm’s rich design narrative and includes a central lawn, cottage garden, and water garden, along with a boxwood farm with three boxwood varieties (and they’re for sale). more photos
