Part of the original Pepperidge Farm estate, the gardens, created by landscape designer Kathryn Herman, surround the charming 1920s groom’s cottage and chauffeur’s quarters. There is a custom Alitex greenhouse with adjacent garden, an extensive vegetable garden and orchard, meadows, beehives that produce honey, a water-feature garden, and a swimming-pool garden with the original gamecock house. A 114-foot double herbaceous perennial garden, original yew “muffins” dating back to the 1920s, sculptural evergreen plantings, and many mature deciduous trees complete the picture, all on six acres.
This garden won the 2016 Stanford White Award and the 2019 Palladio Award, and the house won the 2008 Palladio Award. The garden has been featured in Architectural Digest and Gardens Illustrated.
