Once a center of political power and social circles, the gardens were neglected and lacked clarity when new owners purchased the property.

The designers worked closely with the client to create a series of intimate garden rooms that would provide lovely views from within the house, as well as interconnect for large-scale entertaining.

Key design criteria included integrating traditional and contemporary elements; connecting interior and exterior spaces; expressing the clients' artistic interests; and instilling a feeling of timelessness and appropriateness.

This project was designed by Sarah Trautvetter as Landscape Architect at Graham Landscape Architecture.
